Construction based study programme for 16-18 year olds progressing onto a one year, level 2 apprenticeships in site carpentry, painting and decorating or bricklaying. The programme consists of 12-16 weeks in our workshops completing a Certificate in Skills for Employment in the Construction industry; we also arrange the CSCS card for our candidates as they need this to work on site.
At the end of the workshop based delivery, the candidates will have a good level of practical tool skills and all round knowledge of the industry and a number of different trades. At this point, subject to a good level of attendance and behaviour, we will arrange five weeks of work experience with a construction employer.
We are a CITB approved training centre and also provide the apprenticeship training. This gives the candidates continuity enabling them to remain at the same training centre for their day release once they start the apprenticeship.
