Learner Reviews

Plastering Course Feedback:  The best thing about this course was the realistic bays. Each task was completed on walls and in a setting that you would encounter in a realistic environment… Very helpful and knowledgable instructors and staff.

More Training for your Money.

Less classroom time, more tools in hands time.  Although our plastering courses are short they are very intensive and you will be in your bays plastering on day 1.  The only way you are going to learn to plaster is by having a trowel in your hand and practicing, practicing, practicing.

It is also important when completing a plastering course that you are plastering a good sized area as this give you the confidence to complete plastering work when you leave the centre.  When deciding on which training centre to attend take the time to compare sizes of training bays and visit a centre when a course is on to speak with learners.

Request Further Information
I completed the course along with my Dad and our intention was to use the skills gained to undertake our own projects as opposed to taking up plastering as a career.

So far we have completed a ground floor renovation of his house and the entire renovation of a two storey flat in Leek; this alongside an on-going renovation of a three bedroomed house in Cheddleton and a second flat in Leek. In addition to this, I have recently acquired a stone barn which, subject to planning, I am hoping to convert into a residential property – without the skills gained from the course and then honed afterwards, it would be a daunting task but the fantastic help, advice and tuition given by both H and Paul, we know what to expect and how best to go about the job.

The work undertaken so far has more than covered the costs associated with the course for both of us but has more importantly allowed us to complete jobs to a timescale that suits us and suits the jobs, working efficiently around other trades and has also given us more control over the job management. In addition, it has given me the ability to repair damage caused in rental properties without any delays.

Whilst I originally had no intention of taking on work for third parties, I do now look after most of the work at a local hotel including plastering from bare-brick and damage rectification work which fits in well around my other commitments and full time job.

I would have no hesitation in recommending the plastering courses at Construction Skills College especially given the facilities, quality of tuition and real world, long term knowledge and experience of the tutors.
