Upskilling the construction sector


New funding has been announced to upskill the construction sector in Cornwall and the Isles of Scilly.

The funding will be used to provide flexible, on-site assessment training (OSAT) for SMEs, the self-employed and for those recently made redundant.

It will be delivered by CCB Training, part of the Cornwall College Group (TCCG). Justin Olosundѐ, assistant principal of external engagement and business innovation at TCCG, urged the construction sector to get involved.

“Everyone should be looking to utilise the funding to address skills gaps, ensuring their staff have the skills, knowledge and confidence to do the job,” he said.

“OSAT allows you and your staff to get the essential qualifications needed with no downtime because it’s all carried out on-site by our industry expert assessors.”
