Construction

Over the next five years, construction is expected to become the fastest growing employment sector in the country - with current growth figures predicting the creation of over 158,000 jobs nationally. However the sector is facing a shortage of skills, across a range of trades. 

To support the need for skills in this booming sector, we have invested £2.6 million in a new, purpose-built construction centre, based at our Coast Road campus in Wallsend. the centre boasts the latest equipment, IT facilities, classrooms, learning hubs and demo areas to support you in every step of your studies. 

You will learn from industry experts with a wealth of knowledge and expertise in their field, ensuring you are trained to the highest possible standard on completion of your course. 

All programmes are designed around the needs of employers to ensure that you develop work-ready skills to excel in your chosen field within the construction industry.
