TRN Gateshead Construction Skills Academy Going from Strength to Strength

Here at TRN we see our Gateshead Construction Skills Academy as the jewel in our crown and according to feedback from local councils and construction suppliers we’re not alone.

Working with Builders such as Kier, Wates, Tolent and Robertsons we feel that the Construction Skills Academy is going from strength to strength.

As well as it being the home for our apprentices while they are on day release, we also run a number of pre-employability training courses. Also, as part of our growth strategy we have started to gear up the Construction Skills Academy facilities to accommodate the delivery of new qualifications which allows more scope to deliver bespoke courses such as Healthy Home Healthy Head, Summer Camp and DIY courses for the Gateshead/Newcastle community.
