Our aim

The TVCTA primarily aims to foster the theoretical and practical education of anyone involved in the construction industry, and to organise and coordinate the necessary training for this and allied trades.

In addition, the TVCTA strives to cooperate fully with the CITB and with other key educational bodies and authorities, as well as promoting a culture of training by introducing the principles of investors in people to group members.

Addressing the skills shortage

A key aim of the Association is to address the worrying shortage of skilled tradesmen by locating, placing and monitoring apprentices for member companies. Our consultant Training Advisor makes periodic visits to monitor progress and also liaises between student and company.
