In partnership with LA, Colleges, BFriends Trust, and South & City College, GMI is offering a 3-day DIY Programme that will provide participants with hands-on experience and training in construction-related skills. At the end of the 3 days, an award will be given to all participants as a recognition of their hard work and dedication.

To ensure that everyone has access to these opportunities, GMI Construction will be meeting with all LA’s in the areas where they are working to inform them of this offer.
