BAM Construction Training open third training facility for CPCS groundworks courses

BAM Construction Training has renewed its commitment to addressing the UK skills gap with the launch of a new centre in Binfield, Wokingham.

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.

BAM Constructing Training offers a variety of CPCS and NPORS courses, including NVQ’s with NOCN and PROQUAL Accreditations, along with CITB Health and Safety Qualifications.

The following courses now available at the Ashley Farm facility include:
