Are you looking for a new career?

Working in the same job and career for such a long time can become tedious and lots of people will often consider a new career, but very few will ever take the chance to start again. Workers will give excuses such as, ‘they are too old to retrain’ or ‘they can’t afford to retrain.’

Many office workers dream of an active career to get up on their feet and get working, however, not many will consider doing anything about it. The construction industry is a fantastic place to work right now with lots of work across the UK, however, it is often overlooked by lots of people as they don’t see it as a well-paid job. They are wrong!

Students at Able Skills, past and present, have shown that it is never too late to retrain and that the opportunities are out there for work in all the construction and technical trades. In all trades, students of all ages have worked extremely hard to get the skills and qualifications they need to start their new careers.

Our courses are very flexible with weekend and full time training available. If you are looking at a qualification construction course, the weeks can be broken up into one week blocks to allow you to fit the course around your everyday lives.

With the more structured courses such as, plumbing and electrical, these courses must be completed in a block. Alternatively, we offer a very popular home study option for our electrical courses and plumbing courses for people who have other commitments.

We offer qualification and short course training in eight different trades at Able Skills, which are:

Each trade offers industry recognised qualifications that allow our students to go out and be qualified for work with their new qualifications. We also offer short courses for a basic knowledge in our trades.

With 2016 quickly coming to an end, many people will begin to think about the New Year ahead and what resolutions they will have. The start of a New Year is one of the most popular times for people to start fresh and begin a new career or get a new skill. You can get away from that office job in 2017 and join a very exciting construction industry where skilled workers are in high demand.

With it being a very popular time in January for us at Able Skills, we recommend booking courses in advanced to make sure you have your space on one of our many courses.
