The construction industry offers huge scope for professional, technical and practical careers in a range of specialist areas. Construction companies can be large house-builders or smaller contractors that supply electrics, lighting, services, power, aircon, plumbing, heating and gas. As well as building and construction projects, there is plenty of work in the repair and maintenance of existing structures.

Our courses enable you to develop a combination of different skills so that you can equip yourself to be flexible in today’s dynamic employment market.
