This year saw the timely launch of a brand new purpose-built construction training centre to serve the next generation of construction professionals here in the North East.
Trainbase, located in South Northumberland, was officially opened in April by MP for Wansbeck Ian Lavery and over the past nine months, has gone from strength to strength with the expansion of both its staff and range of courses.
At a time when the construction industry is facing a major skills shortage, Trainbase is dedicated to delivering the highest quality standards in construction training to help meet the needs of local individuals and businesses who require accredited training and testing, delivered in a professional learning environment.
The centre is situated on a 20-acre site at Burnt House Farm in Bedlington, which incorporates a 15-acre all-weather, free-draining digging area.
The facility also comprises a large outdoor training area, as well as office accommodation with training, testing and conference rooms. Plans are also under way to add an indoor roller and street works area by January 2018.
Using a selection of new, modern machinery, Trainbase provides accredited training and testing across multiple awarding bodies, including an extensive range of CPCS (Construction Plant Competence Scheme) and NPORS (National Plant Operators Registration Scheme) categories, short courses, street works and Level 2 Plant NVQ’s, as well as bespoke courses.
