Learning and Development


Mentoring for success

Mentoring programmes are a great way to provide customised support and learning opportunities for new or experienced members of staff with benefits for everyone from trainees to senior managers.

Tell me and I forget, teach me and I may remember, Involve me and I learn”
— Benjamin Franklin

The Ladder Programme

The Ladder Programme has been specifically devised to support staff members who are new to the construction sector and features one-to-one role model, developmental mentoring for up to 6 months.

Built By Us, can design and customise this programme for your specific needs, for example:

  • Specifically targeting apprentices & trainees allowing them to be connected to more experienced practitioners and supporting their development and growth.

  • Supporting people who are under-represented in the sector such as women and people from black and ethnic minority backgrounds for example.

Built By Us can provide a series of management services to ensure your mentoring programme is a success.

Inclusive Intelligence (II), Reverse Mentoring Programme

Designed for managers and leaders in construction and the built environment, this programme, through human interactions, real conversations and case studies, uncovers a range of personal perspectives on equality, diversity and inclusion (EDI), with a view to creating and developing new strategies for creating inclusive teams and organisations.

The programme offers a range of settings – group mentoring, themed smaller sessions and one-to- one – and provides the opportunity to reflect on topics such as company culture, unconscious bias, collaboration and teamwork, difficult conversations, banter and what best practice achieves.

II is run as a public programme or it can be run as an in-house programme for leaders and managers within your organisation.
