Latest LSTA Reopening Update

Firstly the LSTA would like to say a big thank you to everyone who has supported us during lockdown and continuing to support us post lockdown in keeping the Lead, Hard Metals and Roofing Industry upskilled and prepared for future work post lockdown.

The LSTA staff returned to work almost three weeks ago after the restrictions were lifted by the Government to prepare to start training again. The team has worked incredibly hard to ensure the LSTA is COVID-19 secure and has all the procedures and processes in place ensuring we minimise the risks to our staff and those attending lead and hard metals training.

Week ending the 10th July, the LSTA completed its first City & Guilds Basic Bossing and Welding course since March 2020 due to the nationwide lockdown. I am pleased to say that all candidates successfully completed the course and the LSTA would like to say a big thank you to all trainees for adhering to our new procedures regarding physical distancing and hygiene. We look forward to seeing them again on their intermediate and advanced courses.

Feedback & Comments from Tyler and George

 “Outstanding teaching, polite and positive staff, I am looking forward to completing all courses with the LSTA”

“Top trainer teaching the course didn’t make you feel uncomfortable, asked plenty of questions and received 100% answers, went above and beyond. Top course 10/10”

Due to the current restriction we have reduced the numbers on our courses to 4 people in the short term and courses are being booked quickly so, If you would like more information or would like to book your place on our CITB/City & Guilds accredited courses please give us a call on 01622 872432 or email
