The Ashley Farm facility will expand BAM Construction Training’s capacity to deliver high-quality CPCS courses and NPORS-accredited plant and groundworks courses. This move follows unprecedented summer demand at BAM Construction Training’s existing two centres, with turnover climbing 23% year-on-year in July.
The centre is located within 10 minutes of the company’s flagship site at Warren Farm, Wokingham. BAM Construction Training will provide a complimentary shuttle bus between the two facilities.
Matt Durant, managing director at BAM Construction Training, said: “While BAM Construction Training welcomes the government’s commitment to building 300,000 new homes by the mid-2020s, a skilled workforce will be critical to delivering these targets.”
“As an industry we have a responsibility to ensure the supply and welfare of these individuals by providing access to high-quality training. We hope that the new Ashley Farm centre will help to get Britain building with a safe and qualified workforce.”
Ashley Farm becomes BAM Construction Training’s third training centre, following the launch of a second facility in Chippenham in October 2017.

- CPCS Forward Tipping Dumper (A09)
