Funding boost to provide construction workers with access to ‘vital’ training
Posted on Oct 26, 2018
Leading construction training provider Construction Skills People has secured funding that will enable access to vital industry qualifications for construction workers in key regions across the country.
Workers based in Dorset, Stoke & Staffordshire, Swindon & Wiltshire and Northamptonshire will all be able to access the training, which is designed to increase safety, efficiency and productivity on construction sites.
According to Construction Skills People, the fully funded training is available to companies looking to put their staff through a construction related Level 2 NVQ Qualification, leading to CSCS or CPCS cards for successful participants.
Widely regarded as the leading skills certification schemes within the UK construction industry, the CSCS & CPCS card schemes provide assurances that card holders have the required levels of competency to carry out their work on site.
Construction Skills People, which has access to both UK and European Government funding allowing it to deliver more construction related NVQs than any other training provider in the UK, is now calling on construction contractors to reach out to register their interest.
Andy Sheppard, Funding and Levy Manager at Construction Skills People, said: “Access to this training and the subsequent qualifications provides construction workers, and their employees, with a whole host of benefits – from driving efficiencies on site, through to increasing safety and reducing risk.
“The training is fully funded, and is a key step in helping the UK’s construction workforce to develop key skills and gain an impressive qualification that will benefit their career.”
If you are a company in any of the above areas, looking to qualify your staff through the CSCS/CPCS Card Scheme, please contact Emma or Rebecca at Construction Skills People on 01246 589444 Ext 715 or 607.
