CoTrain

Leaders in construction

The SECBE team works with businesses to drive positive change in the industry. We come up with great ideas and partnerships to respond to pressing industry challenges and create programmes to develop understanding and inspire new processes, products and services. 

The team engage with a wide spectrum of stakeholders including:

  • Individual companies
  • Frameworks / supply chains
  • Construction clients
  • Government / local authorities


Major programmes

CoTrain, our Shared Apprenticeship Scheme recruits, employs and supports over 50 apprentices.

Inspiring Future Talent aims to bring together employers, students and educators to encourage young people to pursue a career in the sector.

The Constructing Excellence SECBE Awards inspire hundreds of people to demonstrate the talent and collaborative culture that creates great companies and projects.

Construction Logistics and Community Safety (CLOCS) is championing the safest construction journeys across the UK.

Inspiration, Innovation and Collaboration

SECBE delivers on its core values by bringing parties together to achieve a much greater impact than independent action can sustain. 

We have a wide sphere of influence in both the public and private sectors and with professional and industry bodies. 

A strategic non-executive board and our 'not-for-profit' status enables us to reinvest for the greater good of the industry.
