We identify and undertake initiatives that draw upon our skills and resources, to provide a sustainable and tangible contribution to local communities.
This includes, together with our supply chain, maximising the use of local merchants and labour whilst continuing to promote the principles of equality, inclusion and diversity.
We are passionate and committed about our responsibilities, especially giving back to the community. We want to continue our success, but we also want to continue being an active and supportive partner working in close cooperation with our communities.
As we continue to grow as a company and our turnover increases, we are delighted and proud that our contributions given to the community have also increased to reflect this growth.
Our Community aspiration is simple – to make a positive impact in the communities through supporting selected causes and charities, and encouraging our staff to get involved where they can.
We are currently delivering our bespoke educational programme to local schools. The tailor made structured School Educational Programme has been created and developed by our very own dedicated ‘Developing the Young Workforce Officer’ Lisamarie Innes, who also delivers the programme to the children which consists of:
• A Play-Based Learning Workshop with a focus on the construction industry – Our infant workshop is aimed at children experiencing Early and First Level of The Curriculum for Excellence
• A mix of play-based learning, group work and teaching input with a focus on the construction industry and Developing the Young Workforce – Our middle school workshop is aimed at children experiencing First/Second Level of The Curriculum for Excellence
• A mix of active learning, group work and teaching input with a focus on the construction industry and Developing the Young Workforce – Our middle school workshop is aimed at children experiencing Second Level of The Curriculum for Excellence
As an integral part of our schools’ programme, we aim to enter into Local Business Partnership Agreements with local schools. We aim to develop the young workforce in partnership with schools and help prepare them with some of the skills and knowledge that they need to succeed in work and later adult life.
Both school and Procast will work in partnership to develop knowledge, skills and understanding which will be mutually beneficial for the staff and pupils of schools and Procast Building Contractors.
We are delighted that one of the partnerships already established is with St Bernadette’s Primary School in Motherwell.
