Business Bolton and Bolton College are aiming to work together to develop a local skills training pathway for adults in Bolton who are interested in starting off in the construction sector. This training programme will focus on entry level labouring jobs, supported by construction technician skills training.

Your insight into the skills and requirements needed as a construction employer is invaluable; as is your knowledge of the opportunities and demand for local recruitment into the sector.
