Construction and Built Environment


The Construction and Building Services industry has around three million workers in the UK, making it one of the country’s biggest employers. The industry requires a large number of newly trained operatives each year in order to keep up with demand.

Jobs are available across all areas and with salaries rising at the moment, there’s never been a better time to join this rewarding industry.

NPTC Group of Colleges is able to provide a wide range of training across its sites in Wales and craft courses include brickwork, carpentry and joinery, electrical, painting and decorating, plastering and plumbing.

Training takes place in spacious and well equipped workshops where students have the chance to develop new knowledge and skills which will equip them for a successful career in the construction industry.

A range of levels are available to suit all abilities and the “More Workplace Learning” programmes provide an opportunity for valuable work experience and can lead to an apprenticeship with a local employer.

Most of our students achieve their qualification and go onto enjoy working in their chosen career. Many become self-employed and start their own business whilst others take advantage of their sought after skills and work across the UK, Europe and Australia.

Tuition is carried out by industrially experienced and qualified staff who focus on developing student’s skills. Many of our staff are former students of the College and understand how to make learning interesting and enjoyable and are able to get the best out of students.
