The Peter Brett Foundation was conceived by Peter Brett Associates to address the national skills shortage in the development and infrastructure industry. Launched in 2015, The purpose of the Foundation is to inspire, inform and prepare young people for careers in the built and natural environment.

It forms partnerships with educational and business communities which support the uptake of STEM subjects in schools and colleges and, through apprenticeships, it encourages more young people to take up careers in the development and infrastructure industry.

PBA delivers resources and insight to shape our education so that it provides a line of sight into the world of work. Project based learning within KS4 and KS5 curriculum provides students with a seamless path of progression into apprenticeships, which is key to our ethos, and highly valued by students and parents.

The Big Data Project delivered by PBA, with the support of Prudential, is the perfect example of how business can contribute in a new era of employer-led learning.
