  • Is this course for you?

    The construction industry is heavily dependent on the adequate supply of a skilled labour force, and as a result the skilled labour shortage in the UK has received considerable attention in recent years. With the current economic recovery the industry is expected to experience considerable skills shortages in both traditional and new skills areas.

    The aim of this introduction course is to develop the basic practical skills that are required to carry out basic tasks. The course consists of practical lessons delivered in “real work” situations and you will be trained to use the tools of the professional tradesmen would use on site.
