The UK trade body for access and scaffolding, the National Access and Scaffolding Confederation (NASC), has been shortlisted for a top award for its outstanding commitment to supporting apprentices.
NASC is in the running for a prestigious Pride of Construction Award at the annual industry prize-giving run by the Construction Industry Training Board (CITB).
The awards celebrate all of the best people, companies and partners in the construction industry.
This year’s ceremony, which takes place on 25 November at the Natural History Museum in London, arrives at an exciting time for the construction industry, with 10,000 jobs forecast to be created in Greater London alone over the next five years.
The NASC is the recognised UK trade body for the access and scaffolding sector. Its commitment to promoting safer working practices through formal training and the development of industry guidance helps to drive up standards right across the construction sector.
The leading trade body has been nominated in the Outstanding Strategic Partner category in recognition of its best practice initiatives such as its commitment to apprenticeships, and its promotion of the scaffolding industry training scheme (CISRS).
NASC Director of Training, Dave Mosley commented: “We are very pleased to be nominated and shortlisted for this Pride of Construction award. As the UK’s scaffolding and access trade body (NASC) we work closely with CITB to make the construction industry a safer place in which to work.
“It’s gratifying to receive recognition from CITB for our role in achieving this; and indeed to be recognised for our work as a CITB strategic partner. We have a long and proud history of working with CITB, helping to raise the profile of industry training in the construction sector.”
