Construction Skills Level 1

Michael O’Connor
I am so glad I decided to join the course; for the first time I am actually looking forward to learning every day. I didn’t like school but now I look forward to getting up in the morning and going to do something I love. I really like the variety of the course. We cover all areas of construction, such as brickwork, plumbing, electrics and painting. This is a Pre-Apprenticeship so after I finish Level 2, I would like to move onto an Apprenticeship in Construction, which would give me the chance to work and study at the same time and improve my skills.
