We are delighted to be launching our new National Construction Skills Academy.
This project has been in our minds for many years now and the move to our current 10 acre site has finally allowed us to make it a reality.
The construction industry is facing a skills shortage and we aim to tackle that with the new academy. In addition there are some key skills needed for trades such as ground workers that historically haven’t had any formal training available. An important part of this new project is attracting people to the construction industry, we aim to partner with employers and various agencies to make this happen.
Our sister company ITS has been providing health & safety training solutions for the construction industry for over 15 years and is well established at our 10 acre site on the outskirts of Portadown.
The new academy aims to provide skills training for the construction industry throughout the UK and Ireland and will operate from the same centre. We are launching the academy with a training package for ground workers which encompasses the key skills our current customers are telling us are needed in the industry.
