Have you ever considered a career in construction? If not, this might be the time.
With UK housing sales at a 16-year high this year so far, construction remains a large industry in the UK and skilled tradespeople are always in high demand. And not to mention that average salaries in the trades are pretty great. Reported average yearly earnings for an electrician are £34,051. For a carpenter it’s £34,259, for a plumber it goes up to £36,925 and the average salary for a bricklayer in the UK is £51,555!*
At Wiltshire College & University Centre, we offer full-time courses for school leavers in construction and trades, as well as apprenticeships and part-time qualifications for those already in the trade. All of our courses are taught by lecturers with years of experience in their trade, giving you a direct insight into your career and teaching you real skills that you’ll need day-to-day.
And you won’t just be sitting in a classroom. Our campuses have bespoke workshops for each trade that are equipped with industry-standard tools and machinery, allowing you to build the experience you’ll need to start a career in your chosen trade or to go onto further education.
Courses available in:
- Painting and Decorating
- Gas Engineering
