Courses Open To You After

If you decide that you would like to specialise and achieve qualifications in a particular area, you could consider upgrading to any of the longer course qualifications that we have available. Dependent upon your choice, we can look at what you have already achieved with a view to mapping training or the achieved units over to potentially reduce time and cost for you.


Additional Info

Each of the above listed are subject to C&G assessment processes and are then allocated credits. We have structured this training programme to cover the most commonly required skills so that successful completion of any 3 subjects from the 6 listed will provide in excess of 37 credits which equate to the award of a City & Guilds Diploma. This in itself could prove to be your passport into employment or self-employment as a Multi-skilled trades person.

As these courses are entirely hands on, you can gain a great insight into what each core subject entails and at a later stage you could consider specialising in a particular area. We will ensure that we exceed the requirements of the qualification to ensure that you are given the opportunity to undertake a broad range of practical activities.

Whichever 3 subjects you choose, you can be guaranteed that the emphasis is placed on practical experience and so these courses are entirely hands on; It is therefore recommended you bring suitable clothing and for your own safety, steel capped footwear is essential. All tools and materials will be provided throughout your training period. Due to the facilities and staff available at Able Skills, we are able to offer flexibility with this award. We do not require you to attend for a consecutive period of 6 weeks but we do require that each subject is covered in blocks of 2 weeks or appropriately planned weekends. This is to ensure consistency and will enhance the learning process.
