Trainees and school pupils have completed the traditional construction skills training on the Gorebridge CARS and Dalkeith Corn Exchange courses.

John Laing, head of the Institute of Construction and Building Crafts, said: “We have to ensure that in Scotland our students are prepared to deal with both traditional and modern construction to meet the needs of employers.

“Everyone who wants to work in the construction industry needs to have many strings to their bow and there is nothing better than using a building like the Corn Exchange to learn these traditional skills.”
