Why are you supporting Building Plymouth?

“Plymouth Construction Training Group were one of the very first sponsors of Building Plymouth, and we were involved in events going back to 2015. The group have always believed Plymouth needed its own construction voice and Building Plymouth fits the niche perfectly.

“The Plymouth Construction Training Group’s members comprise local contractors, sub-contractors and specialist sub-contractors, and we are very keen that we are represented and our voice and needs within Plymouth are heard alongside the major contractors.

“The group are part of the Building Plymouth Advisory group; The Board of the SW Shared Apprenticeship Scheme; The Building Plymouth Job Shop; sponsoring and speaking at the Building Plymouth Summits; Adopt a School; and we continue and will continue to support Building Plymouth events in 2018.”
