Maintenance Operations

Multi-trade Operations

Our multi-skills course is an ideal opportunity to develop skills in a number of different trades, including Carpentry, Brickwork, Painting & Decorating and Plumbing.

A large number of our students have gone into Apprenticeships across the trades in the Construction Industry and some have set up their own successful businesses, working on site or carrying out maintenance and repairs.

Government research has found that in 2016, 65% of all new building work was on extensions, refurbishments and insurance work. A dedicated and fully trained multi-skilled trades’ operative, would have the ideal level of knowledge of each of the trades, required for this area of building, making our students invaluable to the Construction trade in our County.

Local industry is looking to develop a younger and more dynamic workforce to strengthen and enhance the Construction Industry. Our qualified and experienced team of lecturers pride themselves on delivering exceptional practical and theory sessions to develop our up and coming workforce.
