About the Southwark Construction Skills Centre
The Southwark Construction Skills Centre recently moved to Canada Water from Elephant & Castle, with the aim of increasing employment and training opportunities in the construction sector for local residents. The centre will act as a hub for information, training and advice for residents interested in construction as well as a centre for training provision for those already in work. It is a partnership between Southwark Council, Art Invest Real Estate, British Land and The Skills Centre who run the Centre.
As well as access to local job opportunities, the centre provides a variety of training courses – many of which are free of charge – for local people. These include: apprenticeships; National Vocational Qualifications (NVQs); short courses to meet project compliance or health and safety regulations; and pre-employability training.
They run regular free three-week (two-weeks in the classroom and one-week on site) Pre-Employment programmes designed to help inspire people looking to start a career in construction and provide you with the basic training and requirements for getting on site. The next courses start in January, to find out more click here.
