Construction

Over the next three years, the number of people employed in construction is predicted to grow to almost 2.8 million, which means it’s the perfect time to start your journey to a career in this skilled sector. 

To support the need for construction skills, we have recently invested £2.6million into a purpose-built construction centre, based at our Coast Road Campus in Wallsend. Officially opened in 2019, our new centre boasts the latest industry standard equipment across a range of trades, so you can really get stuck in and learn the practical skills and industry-knowledge to excel in your construction career.

What’s more, you’ll learn from industry experts who have a wealth of knowledge and expertise in their field, and gain extra support from personal coaches, who will keep you on track with your studies and make sure you’re ready for the world of work.
