Training and Development

For those who are attracted to the sector and for those already part of the workforce, it is essential that we provide high quality training and development opportunities to maintain and grow their competency.

At CECA (Y&H) we have developed a training and development programme for our members which focuses on commercial and contractual skills, predominantly within the NEC form of contract. The training is provided through a series by Watson Burton LLP. Waston Burton are construction law specialists and most seminars are delivered by partner, Sarah Wilson. Sarah is highly regarded by members and respected for her experience and specialist knowledge. These seminars are free to members and include notes for each seminar.

The following additional training events are also planned:-

  • NEC 4 ½ day course – 5th April 2018
