Whether you want to become a bricklayer, carpenter, electrician, painter and decorator, plasterer, plumber or leading professional in the construction industry, Wirral Met’s wide range of construction programmes will help you achieve your ambitions.

Our construction study programmes are based at our multi-million pound Wirral Waters campus in Birkenhead, which is set to support the largest regeneration project in Europe.
