About Building Services

Our Building Services courses and Apprenticeship programmes train you to become a skilled and qualified tradesperson in Plumbing, Electrical Installation or Wall and Floor Tiling.
You will learn in our specialist construction and building services centres and facilities. These include huge trade-specific workshops where you develop your practical skills each week. You’ll start on a course developing skills in two complementary trades, then select one to focus on as you progress.

When you apply to study a Building Services course with us you will start by studying a PreFoundation or a Foundation course (depending on your GCSE results). The Pre-foundation course offers an introduction into Construction and the Built Environment and a range of trades. The Foundation programme involves focusing on developing skills in two trades and then once you’ve successfully completed this, the progression programme requires you to select one main trade to study.
