Discover more about our trade skills training courses
We have been delivering specialist construction training courses since 2007 and are proud to be the only centre of our kind in Scotland.
We are constantly striving to ensure we offer the most relevant courses and qualifications. We have a fantastic team who are dedicated to ensuring that our students receive the best training and support – our students are at the heart of everything we do and we will ensure that you get the most out of your time with us.
We understand that undertaking a training course involves an investment of your time and money and you want to be sure the course is the right fit for you. Hopefully the information below will help you decide – or why not come and see us or attend a no-obligation Taster Session.
We are approved by several awarding bodies including the Scottish Qualifications Authority, City & Guilds and Logic Certification. This means our facilities, our instructors and the training we provide have been certified by national awarding bodies and we have to maintain these standards in order pass audits and keep our approved status. You can be assured that your training will be subject to these same standards no matter what course you complete.
In addition we have collected feedback from our students over the last 7 years and have used this to constantly improve the overall service we provide. We think feedback from other students is the best way to demonstrate what you will experience on your course – please see some of our great feedback here.
In-depth training from industry experts and qualified tutors
As well as being qualified to teach nationally recognised qualifications, our instructors are experts in their field with decades of experience. They are experienced teachers who can also pass on first hand knowledge of working in their trade. Our instructors carry out continuing professional development to ensure they keep up to date and pass this knowledge onto you.
We also work closely with industry professionals who visit to provide training days and keep you informed of the latest developments in technology.
Hands on training with one to one tuition
Our courses are structured so that you have sufficient time to complete and practice tasks, and that you are given the required attention from our instructors. Everyone learns at their own pace and you will not be rushed.
One to one tuition is provided alongside group classes and tutorials. With small groups, you can be sure that you will receive the attention needed to progress in your course.
Lots of practical experience within a realistic training environment
Our training is provided into large separate working areas allowing you to work at your own pace. You will have your own work station and be provided with a full set of training tools and equipment. You will be working with real materials. We don’t believe in dry laying or dry fitting! All of our training is completely realistic allowing you to learn in real life conditions.
Unlimited after course support
Our training does not end when your course is complete! You can return for free advice, re-attend lectures and attend our specialist training days.
We are proud to have built a Trades Training community and have established long-term relationships with many of our students. We will always be pleased to see you.
Along with the technical training we can also teach you the skills needed to start your own business, including marketing your business, pricing and quoting for work, keeping and organising your paperwork.
On completion you will receive a Training Manual and access to our helpline for support at anytime. We offer continued support through our help line. You will also be welcome to pop in at any time for advice or simply to talk through a job.
Honest, friendly advice and supportive staff
We want to make sure the course is right for you and that you get the most from your training. We are happy to answer any questions and chat through your options. Our office staff are experienced in answering queries and our instructors are always happy to talk you through the routes available. You can also visit the centre or attend a no-obligation Taster Session.
After we have responded to your initial enquiry we will contact you to ensure you have received the information and answer any queries. But we will never subject you to hard sales techniques or ask to visit your home.
Above all we want you to enjoy your course! We have a very relaxed training environment and a fantastic team of friendly and caring staff on hand to help you at every stage.
