Construction (Trades)

You’ll never be short of employment opportunities if you’ve got a timeless trade under your belt. As a result, our Construction courses are ideal if you’re the type of person who wants to roll up their sleeves and develop an in-demand skillset before entering the job market.

The courses are taught in our state of the art Advanced Manufacturing and Technology Centre at our Middleton Campus in Greater Manchester. We’re delighted to say it’s one of the leading training facilities in the country – with constant investment being made to its workshops and machinery.

In fact, this impressive 6,500sq-m building is so renowned that it’s regularly visited by employers from across the region and even welcomed Prime Minister Boris Johnson for a special tour in 2022.

We’ve got many fantastic trades to take up – from Carpentry & Joinery to Painting & Decorating. Whichever vocational route is right for you, you’ll have the benefit of learning from a team of expert tutors who have worked across multiple industries themselves. 

It’s the perfect recipe to make sure that you are able to hone your craft and become a highly sought-after member of the workforce!

Elysia-jo Crossley Apprentice at D. Lowe Decorating Studied: Painting and Decorating

Originally starting on Level 1, Elysia-jo proved her stripes on her course and climbed the levels. Once she had more skills and experience, she became the perfect candidate for an apprenticeship.

“The best part for me was how patient the tutors were when showing you different ways of doing things. We could also have a good laugh in lessons!”
