Starting at the end of October Cornwall College Camborne will be hosting another series of Saturday Skills Construction courses, for anyone interested in either enhancing their DIY skills, or for those looking to change their careers.

Courses are available in either a ten week programme or thirty week programme, and include; plumbing, furniture making, plastering, blockwork, site carpentry and bench joinery.

Jon Ninnes, Curriculum Lead, Construction West, Cornwall College said, “These workshops are extremely popular with both novice and experienced students.  Running these on a Saturday means that people already employed and who are looking to learn new skills to advance their careers can attend and those who simply want to improve their knowledge for DIY projects have the opportunity to join us in a dedicated environment.  Over the past couple of years we have built a solid reputation for offering our students really engaging, practical and fun courses, delivered by experienced lecturers in our controlled environment”.

The thirty week courses give students a recognised qualification on successful completion, the ten week courses a college certificate, and due to the limited amount of places available, each student gets plenty of one-to-one tuition, helping them get the most out of each course.

Jon Ninnes added, “Our Saturday Skills workshops offer a real opportunity to come and learn a new trade in a purpose built space, with amazing facilities and experienced lecturers from trade backgrounds. All our courses offer great value for money and include all tools and materials. Just think, attending one of our ten week courses could save you thousands by not having to pay others to do your DIY projects”.
