KCC Helps Secure Jobs In Construction

Jobs In Construction

Kensington and Chelsea College is offering a free training programme to help unemployed people secure jobs in the construction industry.

‘Build’ offers unemployed people two weeks of free construction training, a work placement on a London construction site, and a guaranteed job interview.

All those completing the course will also qualify for a CSCS safety card, which is required by employees to work on construction sites.

Matt Wojtyniak, manager of KCC Works – the college division working with employers to deliver a range of apprenticeships and pre-apprenticeships, said: ‘Unfortunately jobs are no longer as secure as they once were, but employment projects like those run at the college often mean another lifeline for people who have been made redundant or have been unable to find work. As a college we are committed to empowering our community by giving people access to the right skills and training needed to secure jobs.’
