About Happy People Learning Centre

Happy People Learning Centre is the only construction training centre in the UK helping builders get their skills assessed and earn their CSCS Cards 100% Online.

Built in partnership with HPL Recruitment Ltd. & Aven Training Partnership Ltd, Happy People Learning Centre makes online training, assessment and testing in the Construction Industry possible.

Whether you live in London or Wales, Devon or in a foreign country and looking to move to the UK, we are ready to help you get certified in the field you are most skilled in and advance your career.

Our motto is “All has changed!” and this is what 2020 has proved. The world as we knew it and our lives changed without any warning. However, change brings new opportunities and right now we are reinventing the way construction training, assessment and testing is conducted, moving everything ONLINE.

We started this project with 2 questions in mind: “What if we could change it all? “, “What if we could securely move not only training but also testing and assessment online? “So we did.

We used the COVID-19 lockdown experience to create a digital solution for anyone who has the right skills and drive, and who wants to work in the construction industry in the UK. As classroom delivery and site visits for NVQ assessments stopped for almost 3 months, we started developing and receiving accreditation for a new training, assessment and CSCS testing online solution with live trainers and assessors.

No matter the circumstances, we believe that everyone should have the opportunity to showcase their skills and get the CSCS Card they deserve.

Our Team

There are a lot of things that make us DIFFERENT. We’re born and raised in different countries, we speak different languages, we listen to different music; however, we still believe in the same things and have the same goals: to make the impossible possible, to teach in a fun and friendly way and help construction workers make the most out of their careers - all with a smile on our face. So come and meet us!
