Global Challenge 2017

Gleeds Global Challenge is back, and we’re on a mission to inspire!

As part of our commitment to help bridge the skills gap within the construction industry, this year’s Gleeds Global Challenge (GGC) will focus on inspiring the next generation. From 16th – 20th October, Gleeds will be teaming up with educational charity, The Transformation Trust, on an initiative to attract more young people into the industry.

Teams from across the country will be working with local secondary schools on a curriculum-aligned challenge that will culminate in a national competition. Students aged 11 to 14 will take part in a workshop managed by Gleeds staff, during which they will be asked to plan every aspect of a hypothetical construction scheme.

In 5 days we’re aiming to donate 7,500 hours’ worth of volunteered time. To find out more – and wish us luck! - follow us @GleedsGlobal using the hashtag #GleedsGlobalChallenge
