We are a training centre based in Weymouth, Dorset, delivering top quality vocational courses, employability courses and Functional Skills. Our vocational courses include Bricklaying, Plastering, Carpentry and Tiling. These  courses provide the opportunity to develop skills and gain knowledge in the construction industry. Clients can potentially qualify up to Level 2 – the basis for recognised proficiency and self-employment in the building industry. A Level 1 certificate enhances your CV and opens the door to immediate employment opportunities. Our courses are flexible and designed to fit round clients’ needs. This enables the development of particular skills for DIY projects or to further a career move. Get your foot on the ladder and take your first steps in your new career, or move up the ladder for higher earning potential and greater opportunities.

Our Employability Skills courses will enable clients to gain qualifications in Health and Safety up to level 2. All teaching staff are qualified and all qualifications are accredited by national awarding bodies.  All examination-based courses have a two-week turnaround certification.  A full list of the qualifications available in employability can be seen under the Functional Skills and Employability tab. The experience and care provided by our trained instructors and staff, who are all highly skilled and qualified, will guide you through our courses.
