Site Ready Skimming Course
(6 weeks)

Fully funded by British Gypsum

The construction industry is facing a skills shortage for a number of trades. A recent Manpower Group Talent Shortage Survey* showed that for five consecutive years skilled construction trades topped the list of hardest positions to fill, and plasterers are a major part of that skills gap.

In response to this decline, and having taken additional input from UK Federations and sub-contractors, Train4All are preparing to change the way they deliver training in their network of UK Academies to address the skills gap for plaster skim finishers.

Next Course dates:

  • 15/05/2023 (Somerton)
  • 18/05/2023 (Somerton)

Please email transition@rma-trmc.org to express an interest in attending.

HighGround Virtual Rural Week 2022

The Virtual Rural Week (VRW) was developed in 2020 in the face of COVID-19 restrictions

Many aspects of a Rural Week, visits, hands-on and face-to-face interaction clearly cannot be replicated online. However, some subjects are already delivered by a presentation during a Rural Week and certain aspects of other subjects could be adapted to present online. Representing circa 70% of Land-Based Sector employment and self-employment opportunities.

A VRW typically runs from Monday to Wednesday three sessions each morning with breaks between each session. The presenters have supported the Rural Week programme previously so understand the information and detail Service Leavers and Veterans require. Equally, they will take questions and provide advice.

Only a Pavement Away
Veteran Life Skills Hub

Only A Pavement Away is bringing its Life Skills Hub programme to veterans, where the aim is to optimise and harness the skills and competencies in preparation for veterans and military leavers, while developing their existing skillset in preparation for a role in the hospitality industry.

The purpose of the Only A Pavement Away Veteran Life Skills Programme is to help those that have left the military to gain the confidence to enter a new career within the hospitality industry. We aim to utilise their existing skillset to highlight the opportunities within a sector where they can thrive in their next career.

It will also be run in partnership with former senior military leaders who will be running teambuilding and leadership sessions to highlight the existing skills which will enable them to excel in a hospitality role. The programme will include sessions on the hospitality industry and the career opportunities within it, CV writing, interviewing skills the use of IT, guidance to the additional support that the veterans might need, and access to the Only A Pavement Away Jobs Board.
