Our Fresh Start programmes create a supportive and positive learning environment to develop study skills, as well as raise attainment and self confidence.
Our new Fresh Start in Construction course takes the best bits from our general Fresh Start programme and mixes it with the practical elements of a construction course at CWA.
If you decide to join Fresh Start, you'll be getting support with your personal development and giving yourself the opportunity to gain skills to progress to future study and employment.
During the course, you'll have access to career support which will help find the most appropriate next step for you, whether that's further study or employment.
What will I do on this course?
This course is delivered over 28 weeks and starts in November each academic year. You'll work towards achieve an entry level qualification in construction which will help set you up to progress to our level 1 multi-skills course the following year.
You'll spend time in the workshop learning the basic skills required in the following trades:
- Painting & Decorating
You'll also complete units to help prepare you for progression and adult life. For example, you may complete units on personal finance, conduct at work, interview skills, effective communication and a general introduction to health and safety.
