Construction Video Project with ESB and Go Construct

Student Videographers

We're proud to announce that we are partnering with Go Construct to deliver a video competition for Essex FE Colleges.

The Essex Employment and Skills Board has begun its work with the Construction and Industry Training Board (CITB) to promote the Construction sector across Essex. This industry is one of the largest in Essex, employing over 64,000 people in more than 16,000 companies. Although the Construction sector is looking forward to a steady and rapid growth over the next few years, it is also facing significant skills shortages across the Essex.

To encourage more people to consider a role in Construction, we are teaming up with the CITB's 'Go Construct' careers initiative and offering an exceptional opportunity for FE students to take part in shaping a region-wide marketing campaign with their video.

Students will be working individually or in teams on behalf of their college to pitch a film concept for our three film categories. Those selected with winning pitches will receive a £1,000 grant for digital and filming equipment to film and produce the videos that will be used throughout our campaign. Each student within the three winning teams will receive a £30 Amazon Gift Voucher.

The competition is now open so you can download the information guide and application form in the downloads section of this article. For more information, please e-mail:
