Building a better tomorrow

We’re an employer-led, community-focused training and apprenticeships provider.

Our mission

We’re opening the door to the next generation of construction workers, while benefiting local communities.

We utilise our centres to attract and train local people considering work in construction and up-skill those already in the sector.

More jobs for the people

Working in partnership with councils and property developers, we’re matching a site-ready workforce to local employment opportunities.


Open to all

No matter what your background is, there are employers that are seeking your skills. As the industry has evolved, construction jobs and workplaces have become increasingly diverse and inclusive.


Innovative on and off-site training

Each of our centres offer innovative, on and off-site training that guarantees a quality learner experience. We're actively developing a site-ready workforce and wider talent pool for employers.


Local employment opportunities

By working in collaboration with employers, we match our training with employment opportunities. We’re benefiting local communities and laying the foundation for industry improvement.


Flexible learning

By listening to organisations and learners, we’ve been able to respond to the needs of employers, individuals and the communities in which they live and work. We dedicate our resources to support learning success.

The work we do at The Skills Centre inspires more young people and residents in the community to take a step into construction Sam Downton, Operations Director


Our apprenticeships are built to bridge the skills gap and inspire the younger generation through hands-on experience and innovative training.

Pre-employability training

We’re engaging the local community with pre-employability programmes that target local people looking to start a career in the construction industry.

NVQs & CSCS Tests

We’re up-skilling the workforce through NVQ construction qualifications, including assessment, verification and diplomas all ranging from levels 2 to 7.

Health & Safety

Our training ensures construction workers have the knowledge, legal awareness, and skills to handle health and safety issues on site.
