More than 150 people from across the region have now passed one of the three MOT courses run by Shrewsbury Colleges Group at its London Road Campus, including 23 from Furrows Group which is celebrating its 100th birthday this year.

The three courses on offer (MOT Testers Class 4 and 7, MOT Centre Managers and Annual Updates), which started just 12 months ago have proved so popular with the industry, that extra courses have had to be put on and additional specialist staff trained to deliver them.

To help address the labour shortages in the construction industries, a special collaborative event is being held at Shrewsbury Colleges Group to give school leavers, students, and the general public a chance to find out about the exciting careers on offer.

Britain’s shortage of surveyors, bricklayers and other construction workers is holding back building work just at the time when the country needs more houses and infrastructure, according to the Royal Institute of Chartered Surveyors.
