The Impact Of Redundancy Funding:

Construction Skills Training has successfully supported numerous individuals in accessing Redundancy Funding to kick start a career in the trades. A recent success story is Alex Curran who completed a 10 day Agored Cymru Advanced Wall & Floor Tiling course through React Funding. Alex comments on his experience with CST:


"I really enjoyed doing the course with CST it has given me the confidence and knowledge to pursue a career in tiling. Since completing the course I have started working with my father in law full time and the business is going from strength to strength. I also gained my CSCS card through CST and this has helped when we have gone on site to carry out work."
