Get Kids into Survey!

In 2015 RICS reported over 85% of UK Surveyors said that they experienced recruiting problems due to lack of qualified applicants.  In today’s The Daily Telegraph Thursday 16th November 2017; “the skills shortage has now overtaken planning and regulation as the second biggest problem facing the industry”

POB Magazine in America reported a shortage of surveyors full stop!  The International Federation of Surveyors (FIG) and The National Society of Professional Surveyors (NSPS) both launched ‘Young Surveyors Networks’, supporting surveyors aged 35 years and under, however there is a much more basic challenge to be had: starting with the kids (aged 13 and under).

I’ve made it part of my mission to help RAISE the standards in the Geospatial Industry Globally.  Part of my mission is to attract young blood and I have dedicated this page to sharing some of the exciting things we will be doing.  Elaine Ball Ltd will be helping to build awareness of the survey industry globally by delivering fun interactive educational content for the young generation (Generation Z (1996 – 2010) and Gen Alpha (2011-2025).

Get Kids into Survey

As part of this campaign I have designed a POSTER showcasing some of the survey jobs, surveyors do.  The poster is aimed at kids 8-12 years old (and adults too of course) and for their survey mums and dads to walk their children through the magical world of survey.

To-Come…. I am designing a NEW winter scene which will be ready for mid January; the scene will focus on Survey in Antartica…. more to follow on that soon!

Stage 1 of the Campaign “Get Kids into Survey”

The Survey Association Conference on 8th November 2017 in Swindon, England was great!  Approx. 80 attendees enjoyed the conference and the “Get Kids Poster” getting some cracking interest!  Jacobs and Technics taking away a good bundle of posters to help spread the ‘Geospatial’ word!
