Since launching in 2016, the Southwark Construction Skills Centre has grown into a thriving employer led, community focused training and apprenticeship provider.

As a Southwark Council & Lendlease initiative, the work carried out at the Southwark Construction Skills Centre is the result of a true strategic partnership. Through collaboration and continued industry support, the centre is actively addressing the skills gap while benefiting the community of Southwark and the wider borough.

The centre provides local, construction-based training courses and offers them to both companies and individuals looking to expand their skills and gain accreditations. Through employer-led, flexible programmes we enable experienced and high-quality training.

The biggest reward I’ve taken from the impact of Southwark Construction Skills Centre at Elephant Park is our work within the community. As a Southwark resident the work we completed by trainees on projects such as the Peace Garden on Walworth Rd is a great example of social return of investment. John White MBE, Director
