Construction

Train to become a skilled and qualified tradesperson in brickwork, carpentry and joinery, painting and decorating or plastering.

About Construction

Our Construction courses and Apprenticeship programmes train you to become a skilled and qualified tradesperson in a variety of trades such as Bricklaying and Carpentry. You will study in our dedicated construction and building services centres and facilities. These include classrooms for theory and huge trade-specific workshops where you develop your practical skills each week.

In 2021/22 a new suite of Construction Technical Certificates will be introduced. These programs have been compiled by Qualifications Wales and are subject to change so please see our website for the most up to date information.

When you apply to study a construction course with us you will start by studying a Pre-Foundation or a Foundation course (depending on your GCSE esults). 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. 

Your Future

After completing your qualification most students progress into employment in the construction industry. This includes jobs with large employers such as Willmott Dixon, Redrow and smaller construction companies or even starting their own business.
