Construction Gateway

The West Midlands is experiencing unprecedented economic growth.  The construction industry in particular is benefiting from multi-billion pound investments ranging from HS2 to a deal to build 215,000 new homes over the next few years.

Construction Gateway, developed by West Midlands Combined Authority, is a free recruitment and basic training programme available to all West Midlands-based construction companies.  The flexibility of the programme enables you, as the employer, to influence the content of the training programme in line with your organisation’s needs.

We can help new, established, large and small businesses build a ‘work-ready’ bank of construction workers.

Just tell us your recruitment and skills needs and we'll shape a pre-employment training programme to meet them. The four-week training programme is fully funding and includes CSCS cards and other statutory training.

All you have to do is give the trainees a job interview at the end of the programme and hopefully welcome new staff.

Call our dedicated Business Training Solutions Team on 01922 657000 or contact us here.
We’ll guide you through the process and help you to create the most effective employee training plan for your business.
