Fit out Futures is made up of three work streams:

  1. BuildBack - which will develop a routeway for employers to access a talent pool within the sector. 
  2. FE to Employment - this enables full time learners to have work experience within the sector and to improve their employment opportunities. This work stream will build confidence for employers to offer work experience placements. 
  3. The final work stream - 'Sector Engagement' will build awareness of the sector to ensure the sector is appropriately qualified. This employer awareness campaign will enable a greater take up of training.
