Construction Skills Fund

Training to fill the skills gap in construction

The Construction Skills Fund is a national project, funded by the Department for Education (DfE) and Construction Industry Training Board (CITB) supporting the development on-site construction training hubs. The aim is to provide training to individuals looking to get into the construction industry, to fill the skills gap and make more people ‘site ready’.

Hampshire County Council’s project is being delivered across the county, mostly at 5 key sites:

  • Aldershot
  • North Whiteley
  • Southampton
  • Whitehill and Bordon
  • Winchester

Courses are normally 10 days, and open to anyone not currently working in construction. Training is split into three different areas:

  • general construction
  • plant machinery
  • highways/groundwork
