Construction Part-Time Courses

Develop your skills to build a long and successful career in the construction industry.

Industry leading courses

Much like many of the buildings and projects it’s responsible for - the UK’s construction industry is huge.

With a constant need for private housing, commercial and industrial buildings, retail developments, transport networks, national infrastructure - and anything else that requires well-trained, qualified and skilled craftsmen and tradesmen to construct them - it’s little wonder that construction remains such a hugely popular option among our students.

With our team of industry-trained tutors, our professional standard facilities, and an array of part-time courses, we have all the tools needed for you to build a long and successful career in the construction industry. What’s more, our part-time educational programmes are perfect if you have existing work, study, or home life commitments. We have a wide range of trade-skill courses available from Bricklaying, Plastering, Painting and Decorating, and Trowel Occupations, through to Carpentry and Joinery, Furniture Making, and Property Maintenance.

Our nationally-recognised qualification programmes are available from Level 1 Certificates, right up to Level 3 Diplomas; so regardless of your current level of skill and knowledge, we’re sure to have a course to suit you.

Whether you’re looking to upskill for your current role, increase your chances for employment or promotion, completely change career direction, or just want to take on a new challenge - we’re here to help you go further in life.
