The construction sector needs people from a variety of occupations, from surveyors and engineers through to the skilled construction trades such as bricklayers and plumbers. Within Kent, the construction industry employs over 48,000 people and, as a priority sector for the entire South-East, it is expected to grow significantly over the next few years.

At West Kent College, our construction courses offer students a number of different opportunities. We provide a wide range of courses in carpentry and the wood trades, from Level 1 to Level 3, with students progressing into industry through an apprenticeship programme. There are plumbing and electrical courses, with industry recognised shorter courses for those already working within the trade and, finally, our trowel trades and plastering provision boasts excellent facilities for training to the highest standards. 

All students, regardless of the course or level, gain the hands-on experience and technical knowledge that they need to succeed.
