  • All students enjoyed their time at Skill Hire very much. Students were excited to see the end result, but were just as excited to demolish it!

    (These students recently took part in a three day Try-A-Trade course at Skill Hire, funded by the Construction Training Fund)

  • A HUGE thank you for organising the Try-A-Trade for our students. All three teachers have come back to school absolutely buzzing about what the boys achieved in those three days and what a fantastic program it is. They also said the trainer was amazing and worked so well with the boys.

  • Working with Skill Hire was an absolute joy! Our students enjoyed an unsurpassed opportunity to learn and develop skills that supported their career aspirations. The opportunity to engage with on-site works meant that our students have now had a real experience of these trades and feel more confident in their ability to succeed.
