ABOUT CWIC SCAFFOLDING ACADEMY
The University of Wales Trinity Saint David’s Construction Wales Innovation Centre Scaffolding Academy.
What is CWIC Scaffolding Academy?
The University of Wales Trinity Saint David’s Construction Wales Innovation Centre (CWIC) is delivering training at its new £1.5m Scaffolding Academy in Swansea.
Led by CWIC and funded by the Construction Industry Training Board Wales (CITB), the new Academy is located at a purpose-developed facility on Ffordd Amazon off Fabian Way in Swansea Bay.
A range of courses are being delivered locally to meet the needs of the construction industry – this will also mean that students based in Wales and wishing to gain extensive scaffolding training will no longer have to travel to England or beyond to acquire a full set of skills.
The existing building has been refurbished to CISRS requirements and has an internal floor area of around 2,000 square meters comprising nine training bays and four dedicated classrooms, one with IT facilities.
