Considering a new career? Many of us would have been thinking recently about how we want the future to look for ourselves, with such uncertainty out there learning a trade can be extremely valuable. With a trade like Plumbing in your toolbelt, you can even think about becoming self-employed and working for yourself!


Now that weekend training is back up and running here at our centre there is no excuse not to give it a try. Working on learning new skills for 2-days a week is a great way to start making steps towards a new career. The current average wage for plumbers in around £33,000 however, if you plan to become a self-employed trader then there is no limit on your annual earnings!

No experience? If you have no experience in plumbing but you interested, then we recommend first taking on our Introduction to Plumbing Course! The next logical step towards becoming a professional plumber is gaining a qualification to do this we recommend picking up a City & Guilds Qualification via our City & Guilds Level 2 Plumbing Course - If you want to become a qualified Plumber then this industry-recognised entry-level 2 will be your starting point. You will start with the very basics and progress to a comprehensive understanding of domestic plumbing covering both theory and practical skills to enable you to work successfully as a Plumber.


Thinking about staying safe? Well, here at our centre we are doing the utmost to provide a centre that is both clean and controlled, we have put many measures in place to ensure the safety of both our students and staff. We are also trying to limit the number of students at the centre at any given time. Which is why we are promoting our Home Study Level 2 Plumbing Course. This course works by giving you the materials needed to learn the theory surrounding the trade of plumbing, our 'Home-Study Pack' will include everything you need and can be sent to you straight away! You will then attend our centre at a later date to learn the practical side and complete the relevant assessments.
