Wales Set for Centre to Offer World-Class Construction Training


A Wales-wide agreement worth £6.5 million has been struck to offer world-class construction training in state-of-the-art facilities to students and companies.

The University of Wales Trinity Saint David (UWTSD) and The Construction Industry Training Board (CITB) will link up to offer facilities and training for 1,100 people per year, by establishing the Construction Wales Innovation Centre (CWIC).

The headquarters is expected to be situated at UWTSD’s Swansea Waterfront Innovation Quarter, although the CWIC will have sites at colleges across Wales, including Coleg Sir Gar, Coleg Ceredigion and Coleg Cambria.

The construction of the centre is expected to begin towards the end of 2016, with a target to open in September 2018.
