Industry leading courses

Plumbers, electricians, gas and heating engineers are definitely among this country’s unsung heroes. How many of us have felt the dread of running our tap and no hot water coming through, or felt helpless as our TV cuts out and we realise our lights won’t switch on, or felt the sheer panic of thinking you can smell a gas leak

From putting our phones on charge, to taking a shower, to turning the heating on, to cooking our dinner; these skilled trades allow us to live our daily lives in the utmost comfort and convenience.

We have a range of part-time educational programmes and industry courses on offer, so whether you’re looking to upskill for your current role, update your existing skills, 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.

I plan to become a self-employed plumber and be able to pick and choose my hours and jobs.
