This unique approach through the Skill Step programme means that as learners progress their careers we are ensuring that they are supported and trained to the highest possible standards in health and wellbeing.

Managing Director, David Price said “We’re delighted to be working with AccXel both in producing and delivering their stress, mental health and wellbeing courses for their unique Skill Steps Programme. We are passionate about improving the mental health and wellbeing of people working in the construction industry and by partnering with AccXel we know we are taking another step in the right direction.

Nicola Bird, Founder and Managing Director at AccXel commented “Mental health and wellbeing was one of the issues I wanted to confront through education in the construction sector. At AccXel we go beyond teaching what is required and look to develop the whole person – mental health education and training is a huge part of this. We chose to work with Vector Equilibrium as they are unrivalled in their approach to creating and delivering mental health and wellbeing education. I am really impressed by the bespoke content they have created for all our programmes and know that it will be invaluable to our learners.”.

Following four years of research and case study reviews into the skills and opportunities available in the industry, AccXel was founded in 2020 and benefited from a £1.96 million grant via the Getting Building Fund together with over £1m of private funding from local construction firm, K W Bell Group Ltd.  The school will facilitate a cross-sector network of learning opportunities, enabling the development of higher-level skills and creating a coherent higher education presence for the construction industry.
