About Us

Established in 2002, HCTG (Highland Construction Training Group) has been meeting the demands of members within the Highland & Islands area for over 20 years.

As a Non-Profit Organisation registered with Companies House, we actively promote training within the construction industry.

For an annual membership fee of £50 (+vat), we aim to offer courses at discounted prices.

We cater for all sizes of companies, from the micro companies to large regional contractors.

Our Board

Our Board is made up of representatives from member companies and is advised by the Construction Industry Training Board,  as well as having a close relationship with the Health and Safety Executive and together we strive to provide our members with the best possible training experience.

Our Group Training Officer (GTO), Debbie Borthwick takes care of the day to day running of the group working closely with the Chair and Vice-Chair.

We hold monthly meetings, which take place on the first Thursday of each month, and we always welcome new attendees; with different ideas, we can introduce new courses to our members.

Business Planning

Training Courses

HCTG always endeavour to meet the needs of our members and consistently provide a wide range of relevant training courses, events and general opportunities to develop personnel.

Courses include;

  • A range of Health & Safety Management
  • Supervisor & Operatives Courses
  • First Aid
  • Environmental Awareness
  • Various Working @ Height/Scaffolding Courses

We actively promote S/NVQ’s and endorse behavioural change events such as SHAD (Safety, Health & Awareness Day).

Furthermore, in order to minimise costs, time off site and travel, we try to deliver courses in the local area, at or near to our members’ sites.

We can arrange courses for individuals to attend or be-spoke in-house courses, tailored to the clients requirements. For any training you may need not mentioned on our website, please get in touch and we can see if we can help.
