Youth engagement is an important objective for ENGIE and promoting the construction industry and the wealth of careers within it is particularly important at a time when there is a general skills shortage and not enough young people entering the industry.
ENGIE has responded to the need for more widespread and engaging promotion of the industry by developing our own educational programmes
ENGIE Building Challenge
Planning and Design Challenge
ENGIE staff have reached 1242 young people, through delivering 51 challenges in schools across Luton, Essex and the London Boroughs of Westminster, Waltham Forest and Lewisham. In particular, we have been successful in dispelling some of the myths around our industry, particularly around opportunities for women. For example, we chose to deliver our Planning & Design Challenge to an all girls’ school to mark International Women’s Day. At the start of the event, only one young woman had considered construction as a potential career – at the end of the session, the ‘show of hands’ was significantly higher!
