Construction Skills

Students here have an opportunity to practice in a safe environment - everyone can try bricklaying, tiling, carpentry, plastering, painting and decorating. Health & Safety and teamwork in the workshop underpins our daily practice.
We encourage learning by hands-on experiences and we promote individual SMART targets in the workshop.
Theory work is in a classroom setting, some of which is written, some is groupwork and includes discussing British Values. We also offer 1-2-1 where we work on a students SPAG and functional skills.
