"We want more people to consider a career in construction. With Kierriculum, we aim to transform perceptions of construction careers and showcase all that it has to offer and the skills required, including critical thinking, problem solving and practical delivery. 

“The response from teachers and pupils is that Kierriculum is a practical, interesting and fun way to aid conversations around careers, and we are looking forward to rolling this out across more schools."

Tracey Collins, Kier emerging talent and inclusion director 

From meticulously planned worksheets to interactive sessions, each component of Kierriculum is designed to make learning about construction both informative and enjoyable.

“Kierriculum is fantastic for groups who want to try something outside the classroom. It encourages problem solving and critical thinking because they’re working together as a group on a project.” 

Mr David, teacher at Fulham Cross Academy
