Why choose construction at West Notts?

State-of-the-art facilities

Train in modern facilities at our construction centre (Station Park), a dedicated training facility for students looking to get into the construction trades. The centre is equipped with some of the best facilities in the sector, and with both practical areas and classrooms close by, students will hone specialist skills needed for employment.

Tutors with industry know-how

Our tutors have plenty of industry experience and are keen to pass on their tips and techniques of the trade to young hopefuls. Students are taught under the watchful eye of industry experts who have been there and done it.

Showcase your skills

Once our students are skilled-up, they’ll be keen to show off their talents. Construction students have the opportunity to showcase their skills at local, regional and national competitions.

Last year, Station Park was chosen as the venue to host the East Midland’s Regional Skillbuild competition, where many of our students were acknowledged for their hard work.
