We support the industry

The National Construction Academy, supported by Jewson and Rock Fall, provides life-changing opportunities for young people who have the ambition and drive to be successful in the Construction sector.

With the demand for skilled labour growing year on year, our innovative concept of training delivery provides local and national employers with work-ready young people who have the desire to succeed in this thriving sector.

NCA was created by a partnership of 3aaa and Ian Hodgkinson and it has received great support from the sector.

It also responds to the Government’s priorities of developing skills in the construction sector and to increase the numbers of Apprentices.

NCA’s innovative delivery method aims to bridge the gap between young people and the construction sector.

By delivering both Traineeships and Apprenticeships, NCA gives young people the head start needed to get ahead in the world of work.

We're the most widely available

The industry leading suppliers of workwear and PPE stock us in their branches and service centres.

We’re usually near the top of the list for Health and Safety Managers due to our Safety led design features.
