Our Adult Learning Shops focus on building on individual employability skills, providing a range of ‘route to employability’ introduction courses.

The construction industry is the largest growing sector in Essex, offering many varied roles.  The industry standard requires anyone entering a construction site to have CITB CSCS card.  This course will enable learners to meet this requirement.

The following units are covered:

  • Introduction to Construction and Building

Successful completion can lead to applying for the Construction Industry Training Board Labourer (Green) Card.  Conditions apply.
