Building Pathways

Harnessing industry best practice

Creating opportunities and unlocking potential

Every year we bring together experts from the construction, charity and training sectors to share their experiences and initiatives in supporting young disadvantaged people into construction.

These have proved to be an invaluable vehicle for sharing, promoting and disseminating best practice across the sector.

Building Pathways 2022

Our next Building Pathways event will be held in summer 2022. Please contact us if you would like to be involved and keep an eye on our website for further details.

Inspiration from previous years

Louchavan Lemard of Think Big Developments gave an inspirational talk about his journey from failing GCSEs and narrowly avoiding the gang culture which surrounded him, to working his way up to become top of his class gaining an NVQ Level 3 as an electrician.

Once he started work he rose quickly through the ranks but this wasn’t enough for Louchavan!

He wanted to help other disadvantaged young people and so he set up Think Big Developments which refurbishes properties in Nottingham whilst giving young people opportunities to gain work experience and become apprentices.
