Aged 14-16? Like to try out a trade? Want to learn some construction skills such as bricklaying, carpentry, tiling, plumbing?

Essex Youthbuild Trade School is a free, after-school activity for 14 – 16 year olds. Trade School summer term starts 19 April at 5.30pm-7.30pm.

Trade School provides young people with a fantastic opportunity to work with skilled trades people, trying out different trades and gaining some basic construction skills in bricklaying, carpentry, painting, plumbing and tiling whilst working in a fun, friendly and safe environment.
