Work Related Learning (14 – 16 year olds)

Often recommended by industry professionals, CBWA also has deep roots within the community, especially through our Work-Related-Learning program which has had a massive impact throughout the years when it comes to offering young people a brighter future, particularly those who have had difficulties fitting into the traditional school system.  These students are taught in a different building to all of our adult training courses.


Through our Work-Related-Learning programme, we offer bespoke learning courses across a variety of construction disciplines, which is a trusted, proven, credible alternative provision for KS3 and KS4 learners.  Thus, we provide an effective hands-on learning experience, creating a tangible difference with young adults seeking education outside of the school curriculum. Working closely with our local councils, job centres, local industry and school communities, we provide effective, enjoyable learning experiences accredited by City & Guilds and EAL.
