Construction facilities

If you want to work in the construction industry, the purpose-built training session on the Wellington Road campus is where you’ll lay the foundations for your future career. 

Whether you want to specialise in one trade, learn skills that go hand-in-hand – such as bricklaying and plastering – or become multi-skilled so you can offer more services to your clients, you’ll learn the skills you need. 

What’s more, our innovative Plant Training Centre  – excavators, forward tipping dumpersride on rollers and even its own piece of rail track – will enable you to develop the skills needed to work on major commercial construction projects and largescale housing developments planned across the region. 

 The construction centre offers dedicated workshops and classrooms for: 

  • Brickwork 
  • Carpentry and joinery 
  • Electrical and electronics 
  • Gas Centre 
  • Groundworks 
  • Painting and decorating 
  • Plant 
  • Plastering 
  • Plumbing 

Each individual trade area has a wide range of professional tools and equipment and you’ll get the chance to try out new products and hear from trade experts about the latest innovations, techniques and developments in the industry.
