Ebbsfleet Development Corporation are funding Runway Training to deliver an employability programme to give local people the skills to work in a booming industry
The aim of this programme is to introduce participants to a career in the built environment. The programme is aimed at upskilling Dartford and Gravesham residents and starts with a 4-day programme. Participants will gain an understanding of the employment opportunities in the built environment and how to access them. Build their confidence and knowledge of the various trades and take part in hands on session with a local employer.
Lara Pool, Skills Coordinator, Ebbsfleet Development Corporation said “Ebbsfleet Garden City provides a wealth of career opportunities in the built environment from both aspiring trades personnel, such as bricklayers, carpenters and plumbers, to experienced site managers and town planners. We have a particular desire to work with women and young people as they often do not associate themselves with construction careers, but there are opportunities for all within the sector.”
We are delighted to be working with the Ebbsfleet Development Corporation to up-skill local people and support them into employment. The programme is supported by employers in the Garden City, and we look forward to welcoming our first cohort very soon.

Very informative and enjoyable. Well presented by Alison and well supported by Seb. Thank You!
Overall I enjoyed the course and found it extremely knowledgeable and tutorials were easy to follow. The tutor gave excellent feedback with prompt replies.

This was great to work around a full-time job as [I] could select as and when to watch the videos and complete the tasks.
I loved the quality of the video as well as the knowledge of the tutor. I am planing to attend more online training run by Runway Training and I would highly recommended it to anyone who wants to improve their skills sets.
I have gained much knowledge from this course. It is the first time I have accessed training virtually and everything was easy to follow with clear instructions for which questionnaire to complete, video to watch or attachments to read. In particularly I found the personality traits and what motivates others and may demotivate another. I will take this learning with me onto the next stage of my career.

I will like to show a big appreciation to Zoe Harrison for her support during my apprenticeship to guide me to get not only to pass but to achieve a distinction. She has been very dedicated and supportive during the time that I have known her whilst on the apprenticeship. Zoe has been a source of encouragement to me during times when I questioned whether the apprenticeship was for me and considered dropping out. I just wanted you to know that I believe that Zoe is extremely competent as an apprentice tutor and knows her craft. I believe that she is a valued asset to your organisation and under her guidance many apprentices will succeed. Many thanks

Their breadth of knowledge and quality of provision make Runway Training a leader in their industry and it is clear to see how they have achieved all of their current and past accolades. Their staff are all expert in their fields and it is evident that they pride themselves on professional conduct, which as a result provides highly knowledgeable and up skilled staff for our organisation; we cannot recommend Runway Training highly enough.

I would like to say that I had a fantastic learning experience with the company, I found you very professional at all times, great communication throughout and very supportive. The on-line maths formative assessments where very good and helped me be successful. You were able to get me through the exam in time and I was pleased to receive my certificate when I returned from our holiday, so well done I would certainly recommend you to others.

I really enjoyed the course and recapped over somethings that I had already learnt and learned many new things. I also liked that Maureen allowed me to take the lungs out of the Sams (Resusci-Doll). Thank you!!
