About this event

Construction is a key industry sector in Gloucestershire, and now is the perfect time to train for a qualification in any of the industry areas we offer. Our construction courses are a great way to develop skills and build the foundation for a successful career in domestic and industrial construction.

You can choose from a wide range of specialisms, including bricklaying, plumbing, electrical installation and carpentry and joinery.
