CISRS Scaffolding Supervisor Skills Bootcamp Comes to North Yorkshire


new CISRS Scaffolding Supervisor Skills Bootcamp is set to launch in York and North Yorkshire, thanks to funding from the York and North Yorkshire Combined Authority. 

The bootcamp aims to address a shortage of scaffolding supervisors in the region by providing fully funded training opportunities for both self-employed individuals and employees of local businesses.

The first courses, which will cover CISRS and CITB supervisor training, are scheduled to begin in June at the Construction Skills Village in Eastfield. The bootcamp is a collaborative effort between Working at Heights Safety Solutions and Northern Regeneration, with support from CISRS.

Michael Mitchell, Scaffolding Trainer at Working at Heights Safety Solutions and Northern Regeneration, expressed his enthusiasm for the project, stating“This is a brilliant opportunity for people in York and North Yorkshire to train to become scaffolding supervisors. Being a scaffolding supervisor is a superb career with great opportunities to be involved in the thriving local construction sector.”

Dave Mosley, CISRS MD, also voiced his support, adding, “Good supervision is essential in the scaffolding industry. I really hope those in the area take advantage of this offer, we are sure it will yield excellent results.”

The Skills Bootcamps are open to both self-employed and employed individuals residing or working in North Yorkshire who wish to develop supervisory skills in scaffolding.

For more information or to register for the courses, individuals and businesses are encouraged to contact the Construction Skills Village by email at [email protected] or by phone at 01723 585009.
