Create a New Career

Could you benefit from flexible, part-time, FREE on-line courses to help you recreate your career?

If the answer is YES then the Welsh Government’s Personal Learning Account initiative could help you do just that.

CWIC is collaborating with Coleg Sir Gar to offer you a range of construction-based courses that will help to develop your knowledge as well as address some of the skills gaps our industry faces.

What is a Personal Learning Account?

A Personal Learning Account (PLA) enables you to study flexible, part-time courses around your existing responsibilities.  You could obtain the skills and qualifications you need to switch careers and embark on a new pathway.

Personal Learning Accounts provide flexible and fully-funded learning, both online and face to face.

You’ll be able to get new skills and qualifications that local employers need to help you progress your current career or change it altogether.

All of the courses on offer through a Personal Learning Account are being funded by the Welsh Government.
