West Suffolk College: Construction

At West Suffolk College we believe the stronger the partnerships between education and industry, the more prepared and knowledgeable the workforce of tomorrow will be. This is especially important when students are applying to enter the labour market post study or whilst they are undertaking a full time course, an apprenticeship, traineeship, boot camp, or adult programme of study, on the way to sustained employment.

We take great pride in ensuring that our students are taught key employability and personal skills as well as the technical specialisms they will need. This will ensure that we have an effective talent pipeline of people with the relevant knowledge and behaviours to make Suffolk and the wider Anglia region, a hub of innovation, domestic growth, and job creation.

Who to contact?

My name is Tom Lloyd and I work for West Suffolk College in a role specifically designed to obtain intelligence from businesses in East of England. My role is designed to understand employment and skill gap needs, both now, and over the next 10-year timeframe in the Construction industry. The information obtained will be used to inform and ensure that our curriculum and subject offer is representative of the needs and wishes of employers in our region. Whilst I work for West Suffolk College, I am employed via the European Social Fund on a 2 year project which ensures all obtained information is shared collaboratively  with the  partnering Colleges (City College Norwich, Suffolk New College, College of West Anglia and East Coast College).

Please contact me directly via email: if you want to find out more, or to discuss how to become involved in shaping the future of Construction based training in the East of England.
