Support provided when choosing a course

We will provide you with as much information, advice and guidance as we possibly can and if we are not able to offer you the course that best suits your needs or give you the information you require we will signpost you to somewhere that is able to. We do not pressure you to book onto any course and if we feel that you would be better suited to a course we do not offer then we will give you the contact information of a college that does.

Hopefully the majority of the information you require is available on this website but if you have any questions at all then please contact us and we will help in any way we can.

We would like to invite you to attend the training centre to view the facilities and discuss the course with both the tutors and current learners. We suggest if possible that you visit our centre towards the end of a course as people in general are always happy at the beginning of training and you want to make sure that they are as happy at the end of the course. When you visit you will be free to discuss the course with current learners on a 1-to-1 basis, if someone has paid good money or used limited funding to attend a course and they are not happy they will definitely tell you. If you visit towards the end of a course you will also be able to see the standard that everyone on the course has achieved.

One of the most popular comments we receive on questionnaires is that people did not expect to reach the high standard that they do on a course, it is also one of the most popular negative comments that we receive by people who are not aware of what we offer as they will say ‘you won’t be any good after 10 days’, if you yourself are unsure then why not pop down for a pressure free look around.

During Training

During your time with us every member of staff will do their best to help you achieve your aims. You will be provided with supporting literature relating to your trade and have access to further reading to research the trade further in your own time.

If you have any learning difficulties or disabilities or have any physical difficulties or disabilities then we will support you throughout and this additional support will remain between the centre and the individual. The majority of the training courses are practical based but if you do have any concerns then please contact the centre.

We will also provide you with additional IAG relating to progression routes available after completing the course including further training, finding employment and starting to work for yourself. Whilst on a course please contact a member of staff if you require any further in information.Whilst you are at the centre there may be other courses running so if you have any questions relating to another trade please feel free to speak to the relevant tutor – they are all here to help you.

After Training

We will continue supporting you after you have completed a course with us and you can contact us either by email, phone or in person to discuss any aspects that you covered on your course. For example you may wish to contact us to clarify how to complete a job or how to price a job or maybe to ask for information on writing a business plan.

Your tutors will give you their contact telephone numbers and email address so if you have any questions at all you can give them a call. It is invaluable to have this continuous support available and will give you the confidence to complete work away from the centre.

I enjoyed learning a new trade and understanding the work involved. Gaining advice from experienced tutors.  Miss Dargan, Plastering Course feedback

David,  I finished the five day plastering course at the Willenhall centre on the 10th of February.  Although I did complete the post course paperwork I feel that the instructor involved with the tuition deserves a pat on the back.  I am currently employed as an instructor at RAF Cosford teaching mainly theory type subjects, I realise that when a student is given a course critique it is very easy to concentrate on the negatives and forget any good things.  However, I must complement Rob Jones on a very well delivered week of instruction.   The pace of the days were such that there was plenty of time to put into practice the skills and techniques demonstrated by Rob, everyone involved in the week were at varying levels of competency, yet he was able to constantly jump around the group and advise or correct each individuals mistakes.   The demonstrations were well delivered without being too complicated and he always had an approachable manner, I have been instructing for six years now and was very impressed with the enthusiasm Rob showed towards the subject and the delivery of it.  I would appreciate it if you could relay my comments to all concerned and especially to Rob. Thanks G Owen, Sgt instructor

It is clear that feedback plays an important role in monitoring and evaluating services and I reviewed a large number of feedback questionnaires and analyses which confirmed that you collect feedback and all showed high levels of satisfaction.  Extract from Matrix Assessment Report

The course was well planned out and very interesting. I gained the skills and confidence to plaster.  Mr Coomer, Plastering Course

I feel that I have learned a valuable new skill which will help me in my own home. I will recommend this course because it has really increased my confidence and I have enjoyed myself.  Ms Beckett-Davies, Plastering Course

I am fully confident in my skills since starting from scratch – the course was well instructed and 100% hands on. It was a great course and would definitely recommend it to others and would do another course in another area e.g. bricklaying.  Mr Fairs, Plastering Course

Thought the tutor was very approachable and knowledgeable about the subject taught. Very helpful in overcoming problems and building confidence. Found the course very enjoyable and will miss it now I’ve finished.  Sheila Nunn, Plastering Course

Before the course I had no positive thought that I would be able to plaster to a ‘reasonable’ standard. I feel that I can now achieve my goal of plastering my property confidently.  Mr Cartwright, Plastering course

Good coverage of all aspects of basic plastering. I could not believe that after 5 days I can skim a wall, skim a ceiling and make good holes, to a high standard.  Mr Williamson, Plastering Course

My whole house requires plastering after completing this course, I feel very confident to plaster my house to a good standard.  Very experienced tutor who puts things across so they are easy to understand.  Whenever you have a question or need him to check anything he was always available.  Excellent course, didn’t think I would be able to plaster but now I feel very confident.  Mr Toft, Plastering course

Having 2 kitchen studios it was very valuable in fully understanding the plastering jobs we undertake on a weekly basis. I did not think at the start of the week I could get plaster on the walls, never mind plaster a room. Thank you to the tutor for a very enjoyable and informative week.  Mr Jones, Plastering Course

I learned a lot in one week – it’s amazing what you can achieve having the right help. All tools were provided with plenty of them so no need to share. You also had your own tools to take away with you. The info which the tutor told was clear and helpful. I think the course was very good in every way. The layout of the place was excellent, tutors are polite and always on hand to help. I would attend another course knowing what you achieve.  Mr Beardmore, Plastering Course

I found this course to be just what I needed to obtain these skills very helpful for my needs. The tutor never stopped teaching and advising all week – very good. I couldn’t fault this course. It is very good in my estimation. Thank you.  Mr Colclough, Plastering Course

I’m a person with low confidence and after attending grew in confidence and feel much better in myself. I will definitely recommend this course to others.  Mr Bromfield, Plastering Course

First rate course, I have learnt to plaster. Everyday was a full day of excellent content. Would definitely recommend the course, it was excellent. Well worth the money  Mr G Whittaker, Plastering Course

An excellent course that was very valuable. Very good in depth training and good teachers. I would definitely recommend it.  Mr Hallam, Plastering Course

The course has given me the confidence to tackle plastering jobs both at home and for family and friends. Learned so much in a short period of time. Pace of the course was excellent. Excellent course with a brilliant tutor throughout. Would recommend to others.  Mr Lee, Plastering Course

Cannot fault the tutor – outstanding knowledge. The course exceeded my expectations – I thought it was a gimmick on the net and in the paper but turned out to be well worth it.  Mr Jootton,  Plastering Course

Learned an unbelievable amount in 2 weeks. 2 weeks was perfect – got all the basics. Week 2 put it all together.  Mr Woolloff, Plastering Course

Plastering Course Feedback:  The best thing about this course was the realistic bays. Each task was completed on walls and in a setting that you would encounter in a realistic environment… Very helpful and knowledgable instructors and staff. Donal Bowen, 10 day plastering course

I completed the course along with my Dad and our intention was to use the skills gained to undertake our own projects as opposed to taking up plastering as a career.

So far we have completed a ground floor renovation of his house and the entire renovation of a two storey flat in Leek; this alongside an on-going renovation of a three bedroomed house in Cheddleton and a second flat in Leek. In addition to this, I have recently acquired a stone barn which, subject to planning, I am hoping to convert into a residential property – without the skills gained from the course and then honed afterwards, it would be a daunting task but the fantastic help, advice and tuition given by both H and Paul, we know what to expect and how best to go about the job.

The work undertaken so far has more than covered the costs associated with the course for both of us but has more importantly allowed us to complete jobs to a timescale that suits us and suits the jobs, working efficiently around other trades and has also given us more control over the job management. In addition, it has given me the ability to repair damage caused in rental properties without any delays.

Whilst I originally had no intention of taking on work for third parties, I do now look after most of the work at a local hotel including plastering from bare-brick and damage rectification work which fits in well around my other commitments and full time job.

I would have no hesitation in recommending the plastering courses at Construction Skills College especially given the facilities, quality of tuition and real world, long term knowledge and experience of the tutors.
Best Regards, Rich. Rich Johnson, 10 day plastering course
