How can we solve the skills crisis?

THERE IS little sign that the skills crisis now gripping the UK construction industry is abating. Civils 2002 will tackle the causes.

With universities struggling to recruit students to engi - neering degrees and many employers desperate for suitably qualified and experienced staff, N C E wants to find out where the needs are most acute.

Equally important, we want to hear what the industry believes should be done to turn the situation around - to bring in and retain people who will keep construction at the forefront of the UK economy.

Findings from this first questionnaire, inviting feedback from you, N C E 's readers, will be published on 13 December. Data from consultants, contractors, clients, and schools and universities will follow early next year.

The information will be used to launch three live debates - on pay, training and retention - at the Civils 2002 exhibition in June.
