When can I start?


We have noticed a huge rise in people looking to gain trade skills. This may be because of the current pandemic and the uncertainty surrounding peoples' employment here in the UK. Unfortunately, the majority of our longer courses such as our  City & Guilds Level 2 Plumbing course, the perfect starting point for an aspiring plumber is now fully-booked until the new year. However, you can get started as soon as November 30th on this Introduction to Plumbing course. This training course will be from Monday the 30th to Friday the 4th of December!
