Construction and Building Services

Imagine looking at a housing estate or hospital and being able to say “I helped build that”!

The construction industry needs skilled people who understand about sustainable building practices and the latest technology. They also want people who’ve developed traditional skills such as bricklaying and plastering. Our construction training programmes will make you ready for work.

You could train towards becoming a builder, architect or site foreman for construction projects ranging from housing to travel infrastructure.
