Home Building Skills Partnership

The Home Building Skills Partnership (HBSP) aims to develop, grow and sustain a programme to provide the workforce the industry requires to deliver the further increases in housing supply the country desperately needs. It will focus on attracting new entrants into the industry, and on providing focussed training to develop the qualified workforce needed to construct today’s high quality new homes.

Our aims

Over its first four years, it is hoped the Partnership programmes will engage with thousands of companies, workers, colleges and training providers.
