Welcome to our new Construction Training Centre!

We are delighted to announce the launch of our brand new construction training centre on Drummond Road in Bermondsey with the support of our partner Grosvenor. 

The Construction Training Centre will enable young people from the area to access training, education and employment opportunities in the construction industry. The training centre offers OCN accredited multi-skilled and trade-focused courses with Level 1 Health and Safety in Construction included in both.

The Construction Training Centre was formally opened last week, with a welcome breakfast attended by local stakeholders including residents, members of the industry such as Grosvenor and their supply chain, local councillors, educators, those working in housing associations and other local community groups. Guests explored the new training facilities and heard more about how Construction Youth Trust supports young people into the industry. 

This is another step in our plans for expanding our support for young people in Southwark and across London. Partnerships with developers and contractors are a key plank in our strategy to ensure everything we do to support young people is demand-led. The UK has high skills shortages and high numbers of young people out of work; by working in partnership with Grosvenor and the local community we plan to change this. Together we can make a difference. - Christine Townley
