Our brand new Construction Apprenticeship Training Centre (CAT Centre) based at Waterfront Business Park, Brierley Hill is an extensive development part funded through the Local Growth Fund which has contributed £600,000 of investment from the Black Country Local Enterprise Partnership and the Midlands Engine.
Offering first-class training facilities for all construction trades. The centre offers dedicated facilities for traditional construction areas such as: plumbing, electrical, painting and decorating and carpentry and joinery as well a modern technical and digital-focused skill sets. The purpose-built centre focuses on core construction trades and we have introduced three new qualifications in Scaffolding, Roof Slating & Tiling and Sheeting & Cladding.
The CAT Centre has proved so popular that it is already at full capacity and we are now expanding by taking an additional unit next-door to the building which we hope to open in Winter 2018.
It is also home to "The Energy Training Hub" which offers full-cost certification in Gas, Electrical, Renewables, Refrigeration and Health and Safety.
