This programme is for 16-19 year olds who, for whatever reason, mainstream college is not currently an option. Young people can join the course at any time, so long as we have spaces.

The programme consists of:

  • Level 1 City & Guilds’ qualifications in construction skills

  • Level 1 Award in Health & Safety in a Construction Environment

  • Preparation and testing for the CITB Health, Safety & Environment Test and a CSCS Card, if successful

  • Tuition in maths and English to improve skills and gain qualifications up to Level 2 in Functional Skills

  • Working at Height Awareness Course

  • First Aid training

  • One-to-one support and help with CV writing and college, job and apprenticeship applications.

  • Work experience opportunities with our new venture, Essex Youthbuilders.
