AKS Training Feature in Northamptonshire County Council Promotional Video

Northamptonshire County Council – February 2020 

AKS Training was featured in a recent promotional video of the Northamptonshire County Council. In it, our Director, Stuart Phelan, speaks about our partnership working the local authority and CITB. Our partnership responds to the growing skill gap faced by the county’s construction industry, and provides funded construction training for those who find training fees a barrier to entry for work. So far, we have trained and placed over fifty learners into employment. To find out more about the work we and others do as part of the Northamptonshire Construction Skills Programme, by following the link.

Northamptonshire County Council Visit Construction Course Learners at AKS Training

Just before Christmas, on 17th December 2019, Northamptonshire County Council were out at AKS Training, meeting some of the learners who are laying the foundations for their career in construction. They’ve all joined the NCC’s funded training programme to give them the skills and experience they need for an exciting career!

The learners were in the classroom in the morning, and then out on site in the afternoon putting what they’ve learnt into practice.

If you want to build a career in construction, there are funded courses happening right now across Northamptonshire. You’ll gain the skills you need, get practical experience as well as get your CSCS card which will open up many opportunities for you!

This training is for everyone aged 18 and above not already working in construction, we welcome applications from everyone regardless of your background and experience.
