If you’re a practical person who enjoys working with your hands and likes to learn by doing, you are likely to be a good problem solver, who is comfortable working as part of a team and gets a sense of achievement from seeing a job done well.

These are all qualities demonstrated daily by those working across a wide range of construction trades.

We have a full range of construction courses available here at Weymouth College – from entry level through to HNC – and progression opportunities are available at all levels.  Why not take a look and see if a career in construction may be right for you.
