The Construction College, which was the first of its kind in the UK was launched in Gainsborough and has now been rolled out across our courses in Lincoln too.

Across the two campuses all construction disciplines are catered for and students take part in industry designed challenges, industry placements and compete in skills competitions.

The Construction College is supported by some of the best firms around including; The Gelder Group, Gusto Homes, RG Carter, Lindum Group, Woodhead Construction, Ongo homes, Acis and Longhurts Group.

At Lincoln our Construction College is now also home to three micro-academies; The Gusto Homes ECOnstruction Centre of Excellence, The Dulux Academy and Bell Academy.

The ECOnstruction Centre of Excellenece helps train our students in the very latest green building techniques as the industry develops to hit the Government's zero carbon targets.

The Bell Academy and the Dulux Academy showcase cutting edge painting and decorating techniques, with representatives of these companies helping to deliver specialist sessions. All of these facilities are also used by construction and supply chain firms themselves to upskill their staff - so you know you're in the right place to learn from the best.
