Changing the future together

Life is for Learning

The Construction Hub Academy currently has three sites in Wales: Blackwood, Barry and Usk with further sites planned during 2024.

About Us

We develop our own staff with CPD training to fulfil their role

We are The Construction Hub Academy and although only established in 2020 our experienced instructors have been working in the industry for many years. What matters to us, is to support businesses and individuals with quality training, learning and personal development with a range of plant training, NVQs and various courses for the construction industry. We also support and work with local colleges with apprenticeships in groundworks and civils and Highways and maintenance for many councils . 

We offer a selection of courses on a variety of machinery from one to ten days, novice to experienced. We have a confined space training facility, which is one of only a few available in South Wales and we also have classrooms onsite to conduct the site supervisor and site manager courses.

As an NPORS and CPCS accredited training provider and centre, supporting the plant, construction and civils industry, we can source relevant funding options to help with training requirements.

At our Plant and Construction training centre in Barry, Wales we have purpose-built facilities available on site, including canteen, changing area and car parking. We are also able to travel to customer locations nationwide.

We have our very own instructors, facilities and plant machinery.

Everything we do and say starts and ends with the customer in mind.
