Building craft training.

With over 400 courses available across 11 dedicated learning centres throughout the county, adults have the opportunity to build upon existing knowledge, learn something new or develop your skills through an apprenticeship.

The courses are open to people over 16 years old, at any stage of their learning journey and for the first time, they are also available throughout the summer.

The courses fall into three categories: Fresh Start Programmes, offering courses and training to help boost employability; Access to Higher Education, available for over 19’s who want to progress to a degree in Social Care or Education; Skilled Based Courses, based on work related training.

Kieran Shepherd, who enrolled on a Level 1 Certificate in Building Craft at Alnwick, said: “I had a difficult time in Year 11, which affected my GCSE results. The course has given me a second chance to gain a valuable qualification and given me the confidence to get the job I want.”
