Construction Skills Network

ConstructionSkills produce annual forecasts and analyses of 'skills demand' in the industry on a national and regional basis through the Construction Skills Network (CSN).  It will shape our future employment, skills and training needs.

The CSN benefits from the technical expertise of Experian. It collates the knowledge and experience of Government; Sector Skills Councils; construction companies; education and training providers; regional agencies and customers across the UK. In short, it provides a single, clear understanding of the industry's current skills position.

This unique collaboration means the CSN offers, as near as possible, a consensus view of the current and future skills needs of the industry. The CSN brings together, in one place, information from many differing sources. Government departments, regional agencies and companies can all use this resource to confidently plan future skills' needs.

Would you like to get involved in the next CSN consultation?

CITB NI are inviting leading local construction companies and stakeholders to consult on their Construction Skills Network forecasts. These forecasts look at construction output, economic indicators, employment and annual recruitment requirements.
We need the industry’s input to help us validate the data we are producing so we will be asking questions to see if what we feel is happening in the industry matches the industry’s perspective.
Benefits for industry participants include early visibility of forecasts, the opportunity to influence and inform the data, access to regional reports, and the use of data for business planning. You will have an opportunity to hear from other experts in the industry and you will receive a copy of the published data.
