Introducing the Boot Camp Course in Construction, a ground breaking initiative from Barrow Training Partnership. This FREE 5-day course is designed for individuals seeking a career change or those currently unemployed.

The primary objective of the Construction Boot Camp is clear: equip individuals with the practical skills and knowledge needed to thrive in the booming construction sector. Targeting those undergoing career changes or currently unemployed, the course focuses on key areas such as obtaining the CSCS card, setting out, drainage, concreting, modular paving, excavating, and reinstating.

Participants are immersed in real-world scenarios, gaining invaluable experience that goes beyond theory. The curriculum is designed to be not just informative but transformative, paving the way for a seamless transition into the construction workforce.

What the Boot Camp Course Offers:

  • CSCS Card Training: Essential for anyone entering the construction workforce.
  • Setting Out: Learn the foundations of construction site planning.
  • Drainage: Master the techniques crucial for efficient water management.
  • Concreting: Get hands-on experience in working with concrete.
  • Modular Paving: Explore the art and science of creating durable, visually appealing pavements.
  • Excavating: Learn the ins and outs of safe and effective excavation.
  • Reinstating: Understand the process of restoring a construction site to its original state.

I’d 100% recommend doing the BTP Skills Boot Camp course! In those 5 days alone I learnt so much - Life skills and Groundworks. Doesn’t cost you anything it’s a no brainer!


The course opened doors I never thought possible. I'm on my way to a rewarding career in construction! Currently working on the Carlisle Southern Link Road project with Steven and loving it!


The training was hands-on and practical. I gained skills that are in high demand, and now I'm part of something big at Carlisle Southern Link Road
