Mentor enter into joint venture with Construction Training Academy
21st May 2018
Mentor Training Solutions have taken control of Construction Training Academy, a partnership that began in 2016 providing IPAF and PASMA training courses at CTA's training facilities and customer locations.
The Mentor and CTA relationship has evolved over the past 2 years. Well respected experts in construction training and qualifications, CTA have built a reputation as a provider of quality plant and management training in the construction sector and have an expanding list of well-established customers who rely on their expertise for training and VQ assessment services. Both parties recognised the skills that they each brought to the table and felt that together they could offer the construction and associated industries a robust and valued training service based on the core Mentor principles of Service, Quality and Value.
Emily Bonsall, Director of Mentor Training, explains that 'by coming together, Mentor will bring the knowledge and experience of running a national training business that delivers a responsive, flexible and quality training service coupled with CTA's years of experience and competence associated with construction training and qualifications'.

With two outstanding, fully-equipped off-site training facilities, CTA bring a network of highly skilled professional instructors and assessors and provide the full range of mobile and heavy plant operator categories as well as a range of safety training and sector specific VQs. Also, anyone choosing to train at CTA's excellent facilities will benefit from using the latest JCB equipment and attachments.
Richard Shore, now the MD of both businesses, concludes that 'Mentor will remain focussed on the core industries and specialisms we hold dear ... We will be taking our management experience and supporting the growth of [CTA] and their highly qualified and competent team of office staff, instructors and assessors. Something that I believe will bring great value to construction training in the UK'.
