Welcome to Skillsbuild

Welcome to Skillsbuild! A small training provider with over 10 years experience in delivering Construction Training to young people.

About us

Skillsbuild first opened in 2007, delivering construction training a group of school aged young people who were following a vocational pathway in school. Over the years we have had hundreds of young people through our doors, and delivered hundreds of qualifications equipping young people to progress.

Skillsbuild is a lot smaller than your typical college, and we pride ourselves on creating a real family feel, supporting learners no matter what their previous achievments or background.

We have a small staff team, theres only 4 of us! Who will make sure you have every opportunity to be the best that you can be.

    • Whitwood Training Centre is our newest centre, only opening in September 2014. This centre is specifically designed for Brickwork and Joinery courses from Level 1 to Level 2.

      Its open plan layout gives it a spacious, relaxed feel. The centre is kitted out with all the hand tools, machines and equipment you will need to qualify as a Joiner or Bricklayer.

      We can accomodate up to 30 learners at this centre, therefore places are limited.
