Leading UK in building skills

Level Up visit

The Connolly Centre of Modern Construction at Bedford College is putting the town in the international spotlight.

With worldwide articles from equipment suppliers in New Zealand, to visits by Government VIPs and high level experts in the construction industry, the CCMC is attracting considerable attention.

Level Up visit

The most recent visit was on March 15th when a delegation from the Levelling Up, Housing & Communities department of Government, together with a representative of Homes England visited.

Director of Construction David Wilkins, who is hosting many of these visits says:

“Off-site construction is the fast-forward way in the building industry and we have the best facility of its kind, with the most outstanding equipment, which is attracting interest from global companies and those wanting to train in the skills of the future.  We are an exemplar for the rest of the country in construction training.”
