Training and up-skilling constructors and civil engineers, our Construction Skills and Innovation Centre at Cannington campus replicates a real-life construction site, with industry-standard plant, machinery and equipment. Construction site behaviours and standards are also learned alongside specific technical knowledge and skills. For many, the training at this centre is life-changing, and exciting, providing the skills needed for a successful career in the civil engineering and construction industry.
CSIC is also home to Construction Live – an exciting and unique experiential programme offering delegates the opportunity to experience what it is like to work on a construction site. Now recognised as a vital work experience component to those on Degree and Apprenticeship programmes, Construction Live sees delegates experiencing first-hand, project planning, site management, hand tools, industry-standard plant, machinery and equipment, whilst performing to exacting construction site behaviours and standards.
The Construction Skills and Innovation Centre provides critical skills training and Apprenticeships for construction and nuclear new build, specialising in excavation, groundworks, concrete pouring, steel fixing, formwork, water utilities, lifting, operating, and a large number of CPCS disciplines.
