Plumbing & Construction Courses & Apprenticeships
London is where exciting construction happens, from urban regeneration projects to new iconic landmarks.
Our construction workshops are among the largest in London and are equipped with the latest building tools and machinery to help you build your career in the industry. On our courses, you’ll have the chance to learn skills in bricklaying, carpentry, joinery, painting and decorating, electrical installation, plumbing, and other building services.
We also work with Job Centre Plus to provide a course in brickwork. This enables people who are unemployed to obtain a Construction Skills Certificate Scheme (CSCS) card, which allows them access to work on construction sites.
