The Skills Academy team work closely with local partner schools offering students access to a wide range of work related courses from Year 9 onwards. Courses are delivered both within College and school. Our courses offer fantastic opportunities for students who are interested in pursuing careers in the construction industry. In the Skills Academy, students will attain practical skills and academic knowledge whilst gaining valuable experience of learning within a college environment.

The courses we offer provide students with an excellent introduction into a career in the construction industry. Students will gain experience both practically and academically within a construction and College environment. We have courses from entry level to level 3.

We also offer construction provision to those students who have disabilities and learning difficulties and we are happy to discuss any individual requirements.
