CNC Recycling has teamed up with Building Our Skills to participate in two of the campaign’s programmes and help to publicise its work.

In addition to boosting the profile of BOS in its communications with customers and on its website, the national PVCu window recycler has committed to Building Our Skills’ ‘Inspiring the Future’ campaign and new ‘Inspiration Days’ programme.

The Inspiring the Future Campaign asks employers to go into schools and talk to young learners about the possibilities for their future careers and what they could achieve. It is intended to make both them and teachers more aware of the broad range of career paths on offer in the fenestration industry.

The Inspiration Days initiative is designed to open up industry factories and facilities for school visits. The programme has been devised in order to enable young people to see first-hand what goes on inside businesses. It gives them the opportunity to talk to employees and see what job roles are on offer. The process can inspire them at a time when they are working out which career path to choose.

Sales & purchasing director Ian Ward said: “It is important that we raise awareness of the opportunities within the fenestration industry, and make young learners of school age part of this initiative when they are looking to make a career choice. I’m very happy to be involved and working with Building Our Skills. I will give them our fullest support and would ask that other employers get involved too. I’m sure they’ll be very glad they have.”

Building Our Skills Partnerships manager Mark Handley added: “CNC Recycling will help to underline the huge variety of roles available in this industry. For the vast majority of youngsters, they’re unaware of what’s on offer.  So many people think that this industry is only about selling windows! The reality is there are over 50 career paths available.”
