REFORM Training and Skills is offering free construction courses to help those who are unemployed or potentially low paid.

Reform Training has been developing people’s skills to help them into work since 2013 across the south west. They are now working with Somerset Skills and Learning to provide free CSCS training and cards for residents in Somerset.

To cater for a demand for employment opportunities, the company is working alongside Somerset Skills and Learning to fill a gap in the market and meet the demand for the many people who want to work in construction but haven’t been able to afford the qualifications.

CSCS training can be expensive for someone who is unemployed or on a low income, so Reform Training use the funding provided by Somerset Skills and Learning to pay for the qualification. Everything will be sorted by Reform Training and all the participants will have to do is take part in the course. The courses last five days and are delivered online Monday to Friday.

You will have a tutor to train you and guide you, and at the end of the course you’ll have the qualifications that underpin the CSCS test.

Reform Training will then book and pay for your test at the test centre nearest to you and apply and pay for your card once you’ve passed. To be eligible, you’ll need to have access to broadband or unlimited data and a laptop, PC or tablet and be at least 19 years old, with your 19th birthday before September 1, 2021.

All the training will be provided online and so an internet connection is required.

A live tutor will offer the course to a small group and so participants will receive feedback in a supported environment.

Nick Vause, operations manager, said: “The learning environment is online, but it is a very relaxed environment. We do not have 20-30 people in the groups.

“We make sure the groups are small, so people feel they are fully supported by the tutors and the back office staff. Participants will be able to raise any questions that they want. There is absolutely nothing to feel nervous about.”

The company offers free construction courses. When you’ve passed your CSCS test, Reform Training can guarantee an interview with a specialist construction recruiter. Reform Training are passionate about what they do. They offer a variety of different courses to those in the south west such as hospitality, adult social care and so on.

Over the years, they have provided support and training to help thousands of people find employment and improve their lives and prospects. If you want to join them, speak to Reform Training about how they can help you find work in construction.
