Abstract

ACBEE aims to encourage industry, higher education institutions (HEIs) and professional bodies to work together to improve dialogue and provide more relevant training and education. It was established in 2003 in response to the culture and process changes facing the industry and higher education in implementing the ideas put forward by the Latham and Egan reports that propose a more collaborative and integrated industry.
ACBEE promotes the need for courses and teaching programmes to align with current industry themes and demonstrates positive examples of university, industry or institutional partnerships that are measurable in ways that illustrate how they contribute to the advancement of the industry and the society it serves.
ACBEE aims to achieve this by:
• Successfully promoting case studies that demonstrate engagement between industry and HEIs; aligning to key industry themes
• Developing methods of measuring success
• Encouraging the development of courses that demonstrate improved industry performance
The ACBEE programme has benefited from the views of many leading educational, industry and institutional observers, whose wider issues and opinions will continue to be taken into account. ACBEE is funded by ConstructionSkills, and forms part of the Accelerating Change agenda endorsed by the Strategic Forum.
