Building Routes into Degrees with Greater Equality (BRIDGE)

Funded by the Higher Education Funding Council for England (HEFCE) Catalyst Fund: Addressing Barriers to Student Success, BRIDGE is investigating why there are low numbers of women, people from disadvantaged backgrounds, ethnic minority groups, people with disabilities, mature and part-time students enrolling on construction-related degree courses.

BRIDGE is set to benefit those seeking professional, technical and management jobs by providing ways to encourage people from all backgrounds, sexes and ethnicities into higher education and a career in the construction industry.

The project has collated evidence and input from key stakeholders including current and prospective construction and built environment students, apprentices and trainees, and industry professionals. A range of interventions aimed at improving the diversity of graduate recruitment in professional construction subjects is being developed and tested.
