Wandsworth is set to benefit from a share of £22 million worth of government funding.
Wandsworth Council, in partnership with Battersea Power Station have been successful in their bid for part of the Government funding to tackle a construction skills shortage.
The council says the funding will be used to help people learn new construction skills as well as targeting women, under-represented groups, career changers from other industries and people with no previous construction experience.
The 'construction gateway’ training project is funded by the Department for Education and is being delivered by the Construction Industry Training Board.
