Construction and the Built Environment
The Construction Services industry has around three million employees in the UK, making it one of the country’s largest employers. The industry needs a large number of newly trained workers each year to meet demand.
Jobs are available across all fields and with salaries rising at the moment, there has never been a better time to join this rewarding industry.
The NPTC Group of Colleges can provide a wide range of training across its sites in Wales and craft courses including brickwork, carpentry and joinery, electrical, painting and decorating, plastering and plumbing.
The training takes place in extensive, well-equipped workshops where students have the opportunity to develop new knowledge and skills that will prepare them for a successful career in the construction industry.
There is a range of levels available to suit all abilities and the “More Work-Based Learning” programs provide an opportunity for valuable work experience and can lead to an apprenticeship with a local employer.
Most of our students gain their qualifications and enjoy going to work in their chosen careers. Many become self-employed and start their own businesses while others take on highly desirable skills and work across the UK, Europe, and Australia.
The training is conducted by qualified and experienced industry staff who focus on developing the student’s skills. Many of our staff are college alumni and understand how to make learning interesting and enjoyable and can get the best out of the students.
