Weston College

Weston College provides scaffolding training from its new state-of-the-art Construction Training Centre in Weston-super-Mare.

The multi-million-pound training facility has been built in response to the growing demand for a trained and skilled construction workforce in the South-West. The industry-specific training has been designed with employers’ needs in mind and is available on demand.

Courses are offered in five industry areas – scaffolding training, plant operator courses, street and groundworks qualifications, forklift truck licenses and driver training.

Weston College is the only college in the West of England rated 'outstanding' by Ofsted, and has been named both 'College of the Year' and 'Overall Further Education Provider of the Year' by the Times Educational Supplement.

SIMIAN delivers BSI and COTS courses, alongside CISRS core courses and scaffolding apprenticeships at the centre. Scaffolding training courses at the Construction Training Centre are suitable for both trainee and established scaffolders from across the South-West.

The programme is aimed at labourers, scaffolders, advanced scaffolders, supervisors/managers, and inspectors to provide the principles for achieving the qualification via off-site training.
