help & support
for the construction industry

Welcome to Selca

Welcome to the organisation that can change your approach to training and development within the construction industry – and save you money!
The South East Lancashire Construction Association (SELCA) is a non-profit organisation that exists to facilitate training and development within its member companies, alongside offering them support and advice.
SELCA aims to carry out training locally, where possible, and at as low a cost as possible by subsidising the price, with the funding from CITB CSkills and income from membership subscriptions.
It also provides funding towards courses arranged directly by companies.
During 2011 we granted funding towards and arranged courses to achieve 480 days worth of training for our 28 member companies.
