Hercules Site Services PLC CEO Brusk Korkmaz tells Proactive's Stephen Gunnion that the newly-launched Hercules Construction Academy is a pivotal move to address the significant skill shortage in the UK construction industry, particularly exacerbated after the UK's departure from the European Union.
Korkmaz highlighted the academy's aim to not only provide a solution for Hercules but also to contribute nationally. With the construction sector facing a dire need for skilled labour, the academy promises to offer a wide range of courses including all accredited by the Construction Industry Training Board (CITB) and the National Open College Network.
The academy is set to embrace modern construction methods, aiming to make the sector smarter, greener, and more efficient. In its first year, the academy plans to train over 400 individuals, emphasising construction as a career choice and not just a temporary job.
With the capacity to expand staff and student intake, the academy is well-positioned to support the UK's growing infrastructure projects, including HS2 and various billion-pound developments, underscoring Hercules' commitment to training the next generation of construction workers and engineers.
