Funding boost provides access to training for Gloucestershire-based construction workers

Leading construction training provider Construction Skills People has received funding that will enable access to vital industry qualifications for more than 200 Gloucestershire-based construction workers and civil engineers.

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.

According to the company the emphasis of the training programme will focus on promoting environmentally friendly and sustainable contruction processes and techniques.

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 local construction contractors to reach out to register their interest.

Andy Sheppard, Funding and Levy Manager at Construction Skills People, said: “Environmental considerations need to be taken very seriously on a construction site in order to minimise the impact on the local environment and to reduce waste and costs.

“The funded training is available immediately but is limited to 200 applicants, so we are inviting local companies to register their interest soonest.”

If you are a Gloucestershire company looking to qualify your staff through the CSCS/CPCS Card Scheme, please contact Kadie or Rebecca at Construction Skills People on 01246 589444 Ext 715 or 607.
