If you are looking to work in one of the varied trades within the construction industry then our wide range of training courses will equip you with the skills that you need.

Courses are delivered by experienced staff in industry standard, well-equipped workshops. Due to the need to acquire essential skills in each discipline, progression to the higher levels is dependent upon successful completion of each lower level.

Jerome’s Story

“I enjoyed woodwork when I was at school, so a full time course in carpentry was ideal for me.

The practical nature of the course has really developed my skills and allowed me to learn at a fast pace. After completing this course I plan to explore studying other construction trades at Tresham to give me a broad set of skills.”
