In light of the recent announcement regarding the collapse of Carillion, the industry has come together to help the 1400 displaced apprentices.

“Developing skills and offering opportunities for experiential learning is one of the ways Acumen help people starting out in construction. Not only does this help to the organization meet its contractual obligations in the present, but also nurtures the construction leaders of tomorrow.”
