The former CITB’s National Construction college in Leytonstone, East London, has announced that system scaffolding training will feature heavily at the new centre.
Simian who recently secured the running of the Leytonstone College will be joining forces with Dudley College of Technology to promote Modern Methods of Construction (MMC). With the aim of expanding system scaffolding training in the area, the College is offering the training with a significant emphasis on the Layher System.
The Layher scaffolding system is widely regarded as carrying the benchmark for quality and are the worlds largest supplier of system scaffolding boasting a huge, high-quality product range.
During the launch of the takeover, Simian’s Managing Director, Simon Hughes, said: “We’re really excited to get the first of our proposed new centers up and running. The first few days have been a touch hectic, but we’ve started to get our teeth into planning for the future and significantly increasing the portfolio of CISRS Scaffolding training on offer in London.”
Sean Pike, Managing Director of Layher UK was also in attendance at the launch and commented: “We’re really pleased to support Simian and Dudley College in their drive to promote the use of innovation in construction are delighted that the Leytonstone Centre offers a local training opportunity for our clients in and around the South East. We are extremely confident of the quality, safety and time benefits that our products bring, and it can only be seen as a positive that these benefits are now available to a wider audience.”
Simon Hughes added, “The provision of Layher training that will include CISRS System Scaffold Product Training Scheme (SSPTS) and full Layher part one and part two courses is very high on our agenda, as we push to promote modern methods of construction in the capital, using what is widely regarded as being one of the best scaffolding systems on the market, and they will be able to book through our website very soon!
We’re also keen to integrate technology into scaffold training, in much the same way that our partners, Dudley College of Technology, who will be running the construction training element of the Leytonstone site, have done at their Advance Centre in the Midlands.”
