Recruitment, Careers and Diversity (RCD)

This project has been devised to improve the numbers of entrants choosing the sector’s professional occupations as well as promoting diversity and cross discipline working. This will be achieved by:

  • Researching and mapping RCD activities across the built environment sector
  • Supporting the built environment curriculum and qualifications
  • IAG – via information development and distribution; advice and support of careers networks and disseminating guidance
