How We Run


Volunteers form our Management Committee and a Group Training Officer is responsible for the everyday running of the Association.  Grant from the CITB helps to cover the running costs so that we can organise training for its Members at the most economical rates.

The Grant is awarded with a number of indicators that have to be achieved annually which currently include encouraging new entrants into the sector by working with local schools and colleges and by encouraging our Members to support these initiatives.

Our Members' views are sought on what training might be required and we plan our courses accordingly (see courses).  With an annual subscription of only £100+vat, Members will obtain 'at cost' training rates and even some subsidised training. Therefore, even if you only book 1 place per year, it is worth joining. 

Our Vision For The Future

We aim to be the first stop for our Members across Essex as a resource for advice, quality training, updates on legislation, knowledge of best practice, signposting, networking and as a forum for discussion.  By achieving this we are an Ambassador for promoting a fully skilled and safe Construction Industry.

Our Mission

We will:

  • Deliver high quality, flexible training at the lowest possible cost

  • Provide the training that Members require

  • Keep our Members updated on current legislation and best practice

  • Be an access point for advice on all aspects of training and grant

  • Organise networking opportunities, discussion forums and seminars

  • Promote the Industry to possible new entrants
