On Thursday 28th March, we held our first Surrey Training Group meeting of the year with the theme of Apprenticeships. We welcomed our members back to our CISTC training Centre at Natta Head Office.

Surrey Training Group Officer David commented “It was great to get everyone along to discuss how we can promote apprenticeships within the construction industry. With the skill shortage increasing year on year, it’s important that as an industry we keep training those looking for a career in construction.”

Thank you to our guest speakers and everyone who attended.
