Tunnelling Courses at TUCA

The Tunnelling and Underground Construction Academy (TUCA) is a purpose-built facility providing training in the key skills required to work in tunnel excavation and underground construction.

TUCA is the only facility in Europe dedicated to the education of soft-ground tunnelling techniques. Its curriculum is driven by the needs of the industry. The vast building houses an unrivalled range of specialist plant and equipment.

With the National Construction College as lead provider, we currently offer a wide range of training programmes, leading to nationally-recognised qualifications.

Naturally we are responsive to the needs of the industry, and will continue to develop future courses accordingly. We are also able to develop bespoke courses to meet your individual needs.

Our courses on offer include:

  • Workforce development courses: for anyone who is joining or already working in the tunnelling and underground construction industry
  • Pre-employment courses: to equip local unemployed people with the skills required to improve their chances of gaining employment on Crossrail or other major projects
  • Apprenticeships: a valuable opportunity for individuals to earn while they gain essential skills that help them build their career
