Basically, you'll get lots, such as:

  • 5-day training, including work experience in a controlled environment. Training covers handtool safety, environmental awareness, manual handling, employability skills and CSCS training.

  • Free 3-point PPE (personal protective equipment).

  • Career advice (construction only).

  • Introduction to our employer network.

  • Apprenticeship opportunities after 3 months of sustained employment.

  • Workplace representation.

  • Collective bargaining.


It's all about attitude. You can have all the qualifications in the world, but if you're lazy or unreliable, you'll find it's tough getting a job. On the other hand, if you're keen and hungry for a job, we can teach you all you need to get a great one. So, if you're punctual, reliable and enthusiastic - get in touch now!



CTU (CWOATA Trade Union) has been formed specifically to help people get, and progress in, the construction career they want. Although, like all trade unions, we offer things like workplace representation and collective bargaining, we also offer a wide range of other support services, such as training and an introduction to an employer network, to help you get a job. And this all comes at less than £1 a day!
