UWTSD’s Construction Wales Innovation Centre’s (CWIC) new Scaffolding Academy is now open for business. This £1.5 million refurbishment has been funded by the Construction Industry Training Board (CITB) and is based in Swansea Bay. The Scaffolding Academy is Wales’ first and is a partnership led by CWIC with training company Alpha Safety, one of the main construction providers in South Wales.
This much-needed facility for the welsh construction industry provides a 2,000 m2 Access Hall with 9 training bays and four IT equipped classrooms. Thanks to TRJ Construction, who undertook the refurbishment of an existing building, the Scaffolding Academy is ready to deliver the full range of working at height training to new entrants, apprentices, up-skillers, supervisors, and inspectors
