Located in central Birmingham, our West Midlands centre offers construction courses across all levels in Birmingham and Coventry.

For those with little to no prior experience, the pre-employment course opens the door to a career in construction, providing the CSCS Green Card qualification, as well as real-world work experience and guaranteed interviews with local employers.

If you have recently joined the construction industry, or have re-joined the workforce after a prolonged break, you may also be able to access free mentoring and support via the CITB's England Construction Opportunities fund - learn more here.

Our Construction Gateway Bootcamp is aimed at those with a valid CSCS card who have struggled to find long-term employment. This booster provides tailored training and advice, as well as on-site experience with a local employer, guaranteed interviews and a valid reference for any future applications.

For those looking to further develop their construction careers, we offer a mix of free and self-funded courses including: SSSTS, SMSTS and NVQs from level 2-7, including Painting and Decorating, and Ductwork.
