Over 3,600 online courses taken by construction industry

Construction industry welcomes e-learning to help increase best practice in being a considerate constructor

Posted by Stephanie Broad | August 16, 2016 | Technology

The Best Practice Hub - the construction industry’s online platform for sharing best practice - has launched a series of free e-learning courses designed to help raise standards across the industry.

Considerate Constructors Scheme-registered construction sites, companies and suppliers of all sizes can undertake the e-learning courses, designed to improve their knowledge of the scheme, in order to meet and exceed the expectations of the scheme’s Code of Considerate Practice

The e-learning courses, which are eligible for CPD, were launched to all Best Practice Hub registered users in May and over 3,600 courses have been taken by over 750 individuals across the sector. 

E-learning improves users’ understanding of the Scheme’s Monitors’ Checklist, as well as providing a range of ideas to help fully prepare for Monitors’ visits. There are six courses available, five of which relate directly to the scheme’s Code of Considerate Practice: Care about Appearance; Respect the Community; Protect the Environment; Secure Everyone’s Safety; Value their Workforce, and one which provides an introduction to the Scheme. 

Considerate Constructors Scheme Chief Executive, Edward Hardy, said: “The Best Practice Hub’s e-learning courses provide a great resource for any site manager, contractor, supplier or client looking to improve their knowledge of the Scheme and meet and exceed the Scheme’s Code of Considerate Practice. These easily accessible and practical courses are also helping to achieve the ultimate aim of continually striving to raise standards, and improve the overall image of the industry.”
