Construct Your Future in Bordon
Opened in September 2017, the brand new Future Skills Centre in Bordon offers a wide range of specialist construction courses, designed to meet the needs of employers in the construction industry. The £3.8million facility, commissioned by Hampshire County Council, is part of the regeneration of Whitehill and Bordon and gives young people the opportunity to learn a trade, gain professional qualifications through our links with Southampton Solent University or get the skills needed for a career in the construction industry.
Why study Construction?
There is a general and immediate ‘skills gap’ within the Construction sector. That applies to the operatives (carpenters, bricklayers, plumbers) but also to professionals (project planners, site managers, surveys etc).
In order to meet the governments ambitious house building and infrastructure developments, the Construction Trade & Industry Board (CITB) estimates that annual recruitment requirement between 2017-21 of nearly 36,000 nationally and approx. 4,000 in the South East alone.
We are proud to offer a wide range of Construction courses at the Future Skills Centre, covering a number of different areas within construction. We offer courses in woodwork, joinery, brickwork, plumbing and more. Discover our full list of construction courses and apply today.
New for 2018 we are also offering the NEBOSH General Certificate whichis ideal for anyone with current responsibilities for health and safety. It is a nationally recognised qualification and one of the prime qualifications in health and safety.
Located on Hudson Road in Bordon, the centre is easily accessible from Alton via road (the B3004) or bus.
