In response to ever-growing local staff development needs, The Weald Construction Training Group was formed more than 20 years ago. Originally working in conjunction with the then CITB, in 2006 it became an independent training group although still supported by CITB.

The group is committed to promoting training activity to the construction industry and its wider membership and is open to all Construction employers and associated industries who wish to participate in training.

The group is committed to training in the following areas:

  • Health & Safety,
  • Apprenticeships
  • Craft Trades & Operatives
  • Management & Supervisory.

Members are invited to complete Training & Development plans for their business on a yearly basis with CITB so that training requirements can be delivered locally.

The group also encourages member companies to highlight any individual training needs as this may result in the development of new training courses.

The group is always looking to increase the provision of courses in the area and is committed to deliver ‘ON DEMAND’ training days. The group has been involved in several initiatives with the local educational Colleges, Construction Activity Days.

The group recognises the value of industry/education links and is keen to become more involved.
