Being approved by the Department of Education to be able to provide funded training in a range of construction trades was a huge step for us at Construction Helpline. Providing free, funded courses in the Greater London, Buckinghamshire and Liverpool City Region gives us the opportunity to train the next generation in a sector facing a skills gap, ultimately pushing the industry forward. This blog will discuss why we are so committed to these funded training schemes.

What are 'Funded Training' schemes?

Our funded construction training schemes are flexible, free courses that help individuals learn sector-specific skills, with the end goal of being fast-tracked into employment. A part of our training, Skills Bootcamps have a guarantee that you will receive an interview at the end of your employment, with most only requiring a willingness to learn and a good grasp of the English language to be eligible.

Why are we committed?

Supporting the community

Through providing funded training for individuals wishing to enter the build industry, Construction Helpline is a people-focused organisation and we believe these free training courses further supports the community. By providing free training to unemployed / self-employed candidates, these free training courses can give the individuals learning, us as an organisation and you as an employer, a chance to grow as people and have a positive impact on life as a whole.

Upskilling young professionals

Funded training is a great way for organisations to upskill young people in prospering industries such as construction. Not only do they provide relevant training in the industry candidates want to enter, but it also provides real employment opportunities for career progression while gaining qualifications in the process.

Wanting to excel people

We strive in helping people reach their potential and believe that through our funded training, we will have a positive impact in helping people excel. Completing a funded construction course with us should provide every candidate a feeling of fulfilment, with the accomplishment being realised through qualifying NVQs upon the completion of the training.
