The construction industry is essential for our local economy and has been identified as a priority sector for Lancashire.
Currently, there is a huge skills shortage in the construction industry, with the industry being placed in the top five sectors requiring employees, due to sector growth, from 2018-2028. This high demand for skilled people is also reflected in the generous salaries, with the average salary for a Construction Manager in the UK being £45,196.
Right on our doorstep, the Preston, South Ribble and Lancashire City Deal is investing in the county, through the development of significant housing and commercial deals, alongside strong improvements in infrastructure to support these deliverables. As a result, construction companies across Lancashire continue to seek highly skilled people to fill a range of in demand roles.
At Preston College you can study the HNC in Construction and the Built Environment, HNC in Civil Engineering and HNC Building Services, allowing you to develop current skills and progress an already established career.
