How Reskilling in Construction Can Rebalance the Economy

Reskilling the workforce is a great way of balancing the economy. While regional variations have always existed in construction, and an itinerant workforce has been the norm, things are changing fast, making it a great time to study a Construction Management degree.

There are growing opportunities developing outside of London, and our MSc Construction Project Management course can put you on the right path to success.

The UK’s infrastructure pipeline is changing

The largest contributions to construction output has always been from the capital, with London and the South East making up 29% of construction employment in 2017. However, we are now seeing the rise of a number of hotspots, including Scotland, the North West, North East, Yorkshire & Humber, The Midlands, and Wales.

The demand for construction skills will rise significantly in the coming years, so there’s no better time to reskill for the influx of regional construction management jobs.

Reskill with our Construction Management degree

Not only does our course allow you to develop essential academic and technical knowledge in construction management, but you’ll also have the chance to improve interpersonal skills, which are vital for managing and collaborating with large teams of people.

From day one, our course leaders will get to know you, and your career goals, and will tailor the course to support your professional development. Upon graduation, our dedicated Employability Team will work with you to make your ambitions a reality, and hopefully secure your dream job.

There’s nowhere better to study for your master’s then the University of Bolton. We rank in the Top 5 in the UK for Teaching Quality (The Times and Sunday Times Good University Guide in 2021 and 2020), as well as the Top 50 UK Universities in The Guardian University League Tables 2020. And we’ve also been voted No.1 in the North West for Student Satisfaction for the past three years (Complete University Guide in 2021, 2020 and 2019).
