Wealden Skills Centre

At Wealden Skills Centre we offer vocational education and training facilities to all sectors of the community.

The Centre has four dedicated workshops: Motor Vehicle, Brickwork, Carpentry and Painting & Decorating and a teaching kitchen. Each area is well equipped and meets legislative requirements for health & safety. In addition, there is a well-appointed upstairs suite consisting of training rooms, a meeting room, and an IT suite. The Centre has its own car park and parking is allowed on the road.

The Centre is run by a partnership of five colleges: Beacon Community College, Heathfield Community College, Sussex Downs College, Uckfield Community Technology College and Uplands Community Technology College.

Between them the colleges identified the need for a centre offering practical training that would enable their students to acquire practical skills and qualifications. The Uckfield location, with its central position on a thriving business park, and good transport links made it a suitable location for the venture.

From that initial idea the Centre has developed to offer a variety of courses for all ages. Our students come from local schools, colleges and businesses or as independent learners. Most work towards to a qualification whereas others pursue courses through personal interest and self-development. ?
