Fully funded construction “refurbishment” courses available to Bradford residents – FE News


From June, a consortium of West Yorkshire colleges will offer Bradford residents for free (fully funded) training in key “re-equipment” construction skills.

Renovation refers to the process of making changes to existing buildings to reduce energy consumption and emissions. There is a growing demand for modernization skills in the region, and as part of the West Yorkshire Administration’s Skills Connect project, this course gives Bradford residents the opportunity to pursue a career in an emerging industry.

This seven-day practical course will take place at Lida Civil Engineering College starting on Thursday 16 or Thursday 23 June. Travel will be provided to all students to support travel from Bradford to Leeds.

The course will include topics such as low-energy lighting, solar panels, attic and wall insulation, protection against drafts and many other practical skills that will help make residential buildings energy efficient.

Participants will also develop personally and as a team by learning behavior, self-regulation and co-regulation, developing confidence and self-confidence.

Nikki Davis, Deputy Director for Teaching, Training and Quality at Lida Civil Engineering College, said:
“Leeds Building College is pleased to work with the United States of West Yorkshire and a consortium of West Yorkshire Colleges to develop and implement this program. Modernization skills will be vital as we all move towards reducing carbon emissions and delivering on the mayor’s promise to create 1,000 green jobs. ”

To enroll in this course, students can make an inquiry through Futuregoals website. They will then be required to visit the registration day on Tuesday 7 June at the Meridian Center in Bradford and carry their identity card (passport).

This session will also give prospective students the opportunity to ask questions and hear from staff about training, potential employment opportunities and progression routes.

At the registration event, students will also measure the availability of personal protective equipment (PPE) that will be provided to colleges during the course (e.g., shoe size for boot size).

To access this course, participants must:

· Live in the Bradford area,

· Be under the age of 19,

· Be employed, self-employed or unemployed and,

· Have the right to legally reside and work in the UK.

Participants may not be on full-time training or on training at the time of registration.

This project is funded by the UK Government through the UK Community Renewal Fund and is part of the Futuregoals Partnership City Region Enterprise (LEP).
