North Wales



“Passport to Construction” will be delivered across the six counties of North Wales.

Each programme will run for 6 weeks delivering work readiness and confidence building as well as developing practical construction related skills including sites visits and work placements on various construction sites across North Wales.  

There will be a tailored qualification called “Passport to Construction” which will be an Open College Network qualification. In addition, programmes will provide CSCS revision, mock tests and actual test.

Participants will gain practical “try a trade” work experience alongside work buddies that the project partners have trained from construction companies to provide work experience.

The 6 weeks will culminate in CV writing and job search sessions followed by a final day of mock interviews with industry bosses, a "Meet the Boss" session, an inspirational speaker and a celebration of their success.  

All beneficiaries will leave the programme with a personal development plan and clear next steps tailored to them.
