ConstructionSkills - National Construction College appoints new Director

The National Construction College (NCC), Europe’s largest construction training provider, has appointed Andy Walder, previously the NCC’s Commercial Manager, as its new Director.

Andy said: “I am thrilled to be appointed as Director of the National Construction College. In my time at the College, I have taken the lead on a wide variety of projects so have extensive experience and knowledge of the construction sector and training delivery, which I believe will be invaluable in driving the College forward.

“There are definitely exciting times ahead with the redevelopment of our NCC East site in Bircham Newton, the new state-of-the-art training centre at our Scotland campus and the opening of several new sites through the National Skills Academy for Construction programme, such as the specialist plant training facility at Eton Manor on the Olympics site.”

Mark Farrar, Chief Executive of ConstructionSkills, the parent organisation of the NCC, stated: “Andy’s commitment, passion and past experience will ensure that the College remains a market leader under his leadership and, indeed, exceed past achievements as we face new skills challenges in the future.”

Andy joined the NCC in 2002 as Marketing Manager, becoming Commercial Manager in 2005, during which time his work was instrumental to the organisation’s drive to expand its training across the UK.

The National Construction College offers outstanding training to both young apprentices and adult students through a wide range of specialist courses, which are delivered by experienced instructors at first class training facilities. The College’s six sites across the country provide training for more than 30,000 people per year.
