THE COMPANY

The London Construction Academy provides free training to help the hard-to-reach in London’s boroughs who are not in employment, education or training (NEETS) into achieving transferrable skills for the construction sector.

 

Our 15 day fully funded courses are designed to motivate many young people in London into realising that there are real skill shortages in the construction sector particularly amongst technicians and craftsmen and that there are apprenticeship and work experience opportunities for those who wish to learn.

 

Our training courses cover a comprehensive range of skills, procedures and practices, preparing staff for meeting the levels of excellence needed for success in the capital and beyond.

The Academy offers courses for technical delivery, health and safety, customer service and more. It also partners with leading organisations to share knowledge and best practice for delivering excellence for London’s residents and businesses.

THE ROLE

The London Construction Academy provides training and support for best practice in the construction sector.
