Multi Trade

The Multi Trade qualification is aimed at those who want to work in the building and construction industry.

Building and Construction Industry

This is the highlight of my week. At multi trade we work on a simulated building site doing everything from plastering, bricklaying, roofing, joinery and plumbing. We can try each sector or specialise in one area. I really feel like a mature learner doing this course because this is something I only thought I could do when I had left school. I feel great getting on the bus in my overalls and boots…beats a uniform!
