Goldtrowel Construction Training offer more than any other Training Centre.

Goldtrowel give some pre-study opportunity before starting your course this includes the original and only purpose made training films in the UK, these plastering films part 1 and 2 last for approximately 2 hours and have 8 chapters between them. Originally made on VHS but now available to download and stream direct from our site, to compliment these training films we have produced a 83 page fully illustrated training manual that illustrates all aspects of solid plastering.

So before you have even reached the training centre you would already have a very good working knowledge not just with plastering but with carrying out quantity surveys, pricing jobs, material types and more.....

The training centre is purpose built with life size rooms (bays) not broom cupboards, some walls measuring 5.5 metres long, maybe you have a specific requirement ie, your a chippie working with loft conversions, then we have curved barrel ceilings for you.
Our car park is large, free and secure.
