The Works

The Works delivers a Construction Academy SWAP in partnership with Job Centre Plus (JCP).

The aim of the SWAP is to provide a seamless process to individuals who require the Health & Safety and CSCS card to kickstart their career in Construction.

We provide wrap around support where possible to assist our learners in overcoming barriers. Where we can’t, we signpost to services that can support them. By accessing other services we can add additional training for learners to gain extra tickets to add value to their profile.
