The One Lockleaze Skills Academy is a unique training centre on a live development site, designed to kickstart careers in construction.
It offers free short courses to anyone aged 19+ and teaches the essential skills required for a job on a construction site. Crucially, it gives students a Construction Skills Certification Scheme (CSCS) card on completion, an essential qualification to work on site.
One of our first students, Ragan, landed a job on a construction site as soon as he completed the course. He said: “I want my own development site, to build a house for my mum, for my grandma… This course is getting me one step closer to that dream”
