Education & Training

Education is at the heart of the SDF and we have a proud heritage of driving broad-based training and regulation within the industry. We have recently developed a paid-for-App.

Our National Training Group, in partnership with CITB-ConstructionSkills, provides all the post-apprenticeship – or ad hoc – training required by the industry in a convenient location for our members.

This could include training in health and safety, first aid, scaffolding, management, customer care.

The Group is committed to providing cost-effective training in any area that may be required and training grants are often available.

To discuss your needs with Ian Shaw, the secretary of the Training Group, please contact the SDF on 01786 448838 or via Ian’s mobile on 07920 591226 or email
