One of the most popular industries for people to want to retrain for is construction. This industry covers a number of different skills and professions and although the house building market may fluctuate in terms of activity there is generally not a shortage of work for skilled plasterers, bricklayers or tilers.
The result is that specialist schools like Chameleon in Swadlincote have started to become very busy. There are also some tradespeople who want to use the training provided by these specialist schools to broaden their existing set of skills too. Being able to offer other services can help many self-employed tradespeople win larger jobs instead of having to sub-contract out some of the work or turn down the job.
With the employment market as it is nowadays it's no longer the case that the majority of people stick at their chosen profession for their whole working lives. Indeed, many now end up retraining for a completely different career at some point during their working life. One of the most popular industries for people to retrain in is construction. Of course, this industry requires a number of different skills and professions and although the house building market itself may fluctuate in terms of activity and sometimes go through periods when there are fewer houses being built there is generally not a shortage of work for skilled plasterers, bricklayers or tilers.
Perhaps this is why some specialist schools like Chameleon Construction have started to prosper. Of course, there are also some tradespeople who want to use the training provided by these specialist schools to broaden their existing set of skills too. For example, a plumber might wish to add tiling to the services that he offers to his customers so that he is able to gain larger jobs such as refitting bathrooms or kitchens or a decorator might want to offer plastering as a service in order to gain a greater amount of work. In addition, many of these construction training schools offer short courses and courses during the evenings which means that those who want to retrain before giving up their current job can do so, which again makes the courses very appealing. Indeed, a number of those who go on such courses are not even looking to change careers and instead just want to gain the skills for their own use - perhaps to use in their one home or to renovate a building in their spare time.
