DKM are an innovative construction trainer based in Grimsby & Hull and offer a service dedicated to the ongoing development of our learners.
We offer a learning environment where our students are encouraged to grow and develop their own personal goals in a structured process. Our training staff are young, dynamic and look to develop their own teaching styles which keep our learners actively involved in the learning process.
We make sure we keep our course start times flexible, so we are not restricted to term time learning.
What Makes Us Different
Why choose a construction apprenticeship with DKM?
DKM has a great purpose built training centre right in the middle of Hull, as well as a 12,000 square foot premises in Grimsby. Both with separate workshops for our, joinery, plastering, bricklaying and painting/decorating departments.
At DKM we only do construction, you won’t find apprenticeships in random courses that will not give you a foothold in the job market. By choosing DKM you will be provided with a great start to your career in construction. All of our tutors are time served tradesman, direct from the workplace so will give you a vital insight into the construction world direct from their experience, not from a manual, guide or book.
We treat all of our students as peers from day 1, we also think image plays an important part in portraying a professional image and positive look so we provide workwear gear including polo shirts for all of our students from your first day with us. We will make sure from that first day forwards, you will feel part of a small successful unit, not part of a huge faceless college. The directors of the training company are also part of our tutor team so we all have one focussed goal, to make your progress into the workplace as quick and successful as possible.
Finally we limit our class sizes so you’re not part of a massive group that leaves individual development time restricted, our classes are never more than a group of 10:1 (some colleges can run class sizes as many as 30:1)
