About Us

In association with a diverse and dynamic range of construction companies and local training providers

It was formed over 30 years ago, and in 2001 became the first independent construction training association established in Wales. It now provides a support structure for the training and development needs of its association members, as well as opportunities, training and advice for apprentices and trainees within the construction industry across the Carmarthenshire region.

CCTAL works closely with local colleges and training providers to identify training needs within the industry, and where possible, endorse the achievement of recognised qualifications to training for future generations.

Our Board

The association’s members are driven towards a common goal and are committed to embrace sustainability and overall business improvement. The voluntary partnership aims to offer a mutual support infrastructure to member organisations.

Networking opportunities give CCTAL’s members the chance to share ideas, experience, product knowledge and best practice as well as gaining information relating to local projects and keeping up to date with local initiatives and news.
