Event description

Description

The Wates “Building Futures” opportunity is available to 19+ Job Seekers in receipt of state benefits. No previous experience or knowledge of the construction sector is required although candidates must show an enthusiasm and positive attitude towards pursuing a career in construction.

Learners will gain basic skills across a range of trades within construction e.g. joinery, painting/decorating, plumbing. They will gain the BTEC Level 1 Certificate in Construction, the Health and Safety in the Environment Award Level 1 and also their Green Labourer’s CSCS card – all funded by Ixion and Wates Group.

We will also provide lunch each day and will pay for PPE (boots, hat, jacket, gloves, glasses) for all learners, which they get to keep.

Week one will be focused on gaining practical skills in a workshop environment in a number of trades. Week two involves some classroom activities, preparation for the CSCS test, visits to local Wates sites to gain a valuable insight into what it is like to work in construction and interviews with employers - Wates and their supply chain.

You will also complete a community project on the final day of the course where learners will put their new skills into practice e.g. painting a local community centre. A certificate presentation ceremony follows which you are welcome to attend.
