Training young people pre-16 and post-16 with practical skills along with information and advice on working in the construction industry and preparing them for life.

The benefits of our services


We use different approaches with our learners and are always looking for new ways to engage them.


A formal qualification can give those that are less academically inclined the opportunity to achieve recognition and boost their self confidence.

Short courses

Taster courses can be used to engage or re-engage learners, assess interest in the subject or just to provide “something different.”


Our approach for school learners is around practical, hands-on training. Not all students learn best in a classroom environment.

Courses we can provide

We run a range of construction-based training programmes including those leading to qualifications (accredited by City & Guilds) and taster programmes. We can offer places for individuals and for groups, for regular attendance between 1 and 4 days per week over a term or academic year - or "block" bookings for days or weeks at a time.

We would be delighted to discuss your particular needs, and those of your learners. Please do get in touch with us to learn more.
