Construction

Benefit from specialist staff, and specialist equipment and workshop facilities to learn your chosen trade.

A word from us

Construction is a vast worldwide industry, and the range of activities and job opportunities is also vast.

Think about your own house or the buildings around you, you’ll have an opinion on whether they look good, are well designed or well made, and you’ll be interested in doing something about it.

Our study programmes and Apprenticeships cover many trades including brickwork, electrical, joinery, plastering and plumbing.

Whether you’re starting out in your career, or have had previous experience, our industry-experienced teaching team will give you the skills you need.

And because we are industry-led, your CV will have a massive boost which will help you find work in any of the specialist areas that you decide to follow with us.

We have great links with local trades, plus we are really proactive with skills competitions so you have a great opportunity to gain confidence, and raise your profile with employers.
