Practical Construction Course comes to an end

28 learners who did the course will now progress onto Construction Skills 4 Life to gain qualifications needed to work in the sector.

The fifth and final Practical Construction Course finished this week giving 28 learners the opportunity to gain real life construction work experience.

The free entry level construction training scheme delivered by EN:Able Futures and funded through ESF Community Grants 5 - Humber Learning Consortium gave learners practical hands-on experience to give them a taste of what life working in construction is really like.

Each learner now has the opportunity to progress onto the Construction Skills 4 Life training program where they will gain Level 1 Health and Safety in a Construction Environment and a CSCS card to allow them to work on any construction site.

Alongside these qualifications they will also complete up to three E-learning courses in Manual Handling, Asbestos Awareness, First Aid, Risk Assessment, Fire Risk Assessment, Working at Heights, RIDOR, Interview Skills and Time Management.

There will also be the opportunity for some of the learners to gain real hands-on work experience and in-depth employability training.

Training is designed to enable people most distant from the employment market to gain entry level job opportunities in the construction and built environment sector, and set them on a path to a fulfilling careers .
