Construction, Electrical and Plumbing

The opportunities for you are endless with our range of workshops. From a large bricklaying studio to a dedicated carpentry floor to electrical workshops all the resources you need to build a brighter future are at your fingertips. Our electrical workshops were renovated in 2018 ensuring they are of the highest standard possible to give you the best learning environment.

Our plumbing study programmes are delivered in partnership with CK Assessment and Training in Nazeing who provide exceptional on-site facilities and a team of trainers and assessors with years of industry experience.

The department teams, themselves experts in their trade, work with local employers to embed work experience opportunities, which means that our study programmes are relevant and enable you to gain valuable real-life experience alongside the qualifications.
