Free Training for Job Seekers

construction plant training in devon

Free training is offered at the Matford Centre, Marsh Barton, Exeter which includes two nationally recognised qualifications ideal for your CV.

In addition, you may select one of the following:

  • fork truck training (Counterbalance)
  • construction health and safety CSCS card
  • driver CPC card  (35 hours)
  • £50.00 voucher for clothes, boots, PPE, tools etc
  • First Aid Certificate

So what’s involved?

Returning to work after a period of unemployment can be daunting and some of your skills may be in need of a boost.

Every employer understands that Maths and English is vital in every day life including at work. We can give you the opportunity to gain one or both qualifications at a level achievable to you. Adding to your CV a recent achievement shows your enthusiasm not only to better yourself but you are also willing to learn and be trained. You carry out an initial assessment to find out what level suits you and then a diagnostic assessment to tell us what areas we need to support you with.  We make sure we keep group sizes down to ensure you get the support needed and if you require extra help then this can be arranged on a 1-1 tutor-pupil ratio. Funding is restricted so call us on 01392  42 62 42 and arrange for a free informal introduction.
