The construction sector is consistently reporting skills shortages and a relatively low attractiveness towards young people, despite its increased use of apprenticeships as a training path. Construction apprenticeship mentors appear reluctant to introduce new digital methods during their teaching practices, and sometimes also find that their role as trainers is not specified well enough to allow for such approaches. It is essential to develop professional opportunities of high quality, and to train workplace mentors on how to introduce new digital methods and innovative content during their teaching practices to make training effective, address misalignments between training, skills demand and learners’ realities.
