About King's Cross Construction

King's Cross Construction Skills Centre (KXCSC) is the London Borough of Camden's flagship Skills Centre, and has been operational since June 2004. Here at the Centre we specialise in offering training, apprenticeships, employment advice and guidance to local residents keen on gaining construction qualifications, and starting or furthering a career in within the construction industry.

In the Camden area there are a number of exciting building developments happening, for example, King's Cross Central, currently being developed by Argent. This site, situated across the street from the centre, is regarded as one of the biggest construction developments in London.

Developments like this will of course mean job and training opportunities are being created for Camden and Islington residents.

If you're keen to be a part of this, then our team of professional training and recruitment specialists can help you prepare and apply for opportunities in the local area.

If you want to find out about other types of apprenticeships, Camden apprenticeship can help Camden residents aged 16+ no upper age limit or former Camden Secondary School students get apprenticeships in areas like business administration, customer service, childcare and caretaking. Please call 020 7974 2689, email apprenticeships@camden.gov.uk or visit www.camden.gov.uk/apprenticeships for more information.
