There are hundreds of different jobs available in the construction industry. Sometimes it’s not easy to know which trade to study especially if you’ve never really experienced them before.
At Gloucestershire College you will have the opportunity to find out which trade suits you the most. In one year you’ll be given a taster of bricklaying, carpentry, painting and decorating and plastering. After you’ve finished this Entry 3 course you can then decide to specialise in a particular trade, and take our level 1 diploma.
Gloucestershire College has a purpose-built Construction Departments across our three.
Past students have said “This has been great and enabled me to try out a few trades before I decided on what to do further training in." “I thought I wanted to be a bricklayer but after doing this course I realised I was a much better painter and decorator and that is the area I am now doing my level 2 course in.”
You’ll soon learn that health and safety is extremely important in the construction industry therefore it’s essential you are kitted out in protective clothing and steel toe-capped shoes or boots.
