The Construction industry in the UK is one of the largest in the country’s economy, employing 3.1 million people, or more than 9 percent of the population. That’s why Cheshire College offers a diverse, broad range of different courses, so you will be able to build your future in the best way that suits you.
Throughout your studies, you’ll have access to our state-of-the-art Construction facilities consisting of industry standard equipment and bespoke workshops for training in areas such as plumbing, boiler installations, electrical installations, carpentry and joinery.
Cheshire College is proud to have strong links with regional and national employers within the industry including Kier, Balfour Beatty, Graham, Redrow and Sanctuary Maintenance. These relationships benefit our students immensely as they explore work placements, advice and Apprenticeship or employment opportunities.
Our Construction students have progressed onto employment within the industry in roles such as a Bricklayer, Carpenter, Electrical Installer, Joiner and Plumber. Others have advanced onto study higher-level courses in areas such as Architecture, Surveying and Engineering.
“I’d tried a few other things in the past such as plumbing and warehousing and storage but it wasn’t what I was really interested in. I came back to the College to do Carpentry and Joinery and really enjoyed it. I’ve worked really hard and completed Levels 1 to 3 in only 2 years. Thanks to support from the College, and the contacts the teachers have, I’m starting a new job as a Carpenter with a locksmith company.”
