Construction training for women

Swan has partnered with the New City College to offer women living in and around Blackwall Reach a bespoke course to help them learn about various building trades, gain practical experience and get a job within the construction industry. As well as getting an introduction to the building trades those taking part will learn about life in the industry to maximise their employment potential. Once the eight-week course is completed participants will receive the following:

  • City & Guilds qualification (Entry level 3)
  • Employability and functional skills
  • Onsite work experience
  • CSCS card and employment support
  • Progression to further learning

We are aiming to put together our next cohort after the summer holiday and this time we would like female residents to sign up.


If you are female, aged 18+ and living in and around the Blackwall Reach area, please email your expression of interest stating your name and address to Abdullah Hossain, Employment and Training Manager at Swan, on
