Our assessors make regular visits to the site to check on progress and to hear how the apprentice’s and employer’s relationship is developing. They adhere to our very strict quality and compliance guidelines as well, to ensure the highest possible standards of care and achievement.

"I have found UK Construction College to be communicative, supportive and engaged as a training provider. Since the initial contact by UK Construction College, communication via email and telephone has been at an appropriate level and responsive to my queries. In particular, Allison Allen has been friendly, professional and always willing to assist with all aspects of taking on potential apprentices. Allison has been available and willing to talk outside a rigid 9-5 working day and has been pro-active and supportive throughout the whole process"
