Keen on working in a construction-related area as a surveyor, manager or architect?
Then it makes sense to get a recognised construction-industry qualification.
The subsidiary and extended years of this course feature a number of mandatory units, and a range of optional ones so you can select your specialisms.
Units on the course include:
- Health & Safety
- Sustainable Construction
- Science & Materials in Construction
- Construction Technology
- Construction Technology & Design in Construction
Assessment is via coursework covering both your theory and practical knowledge.
There are also formal exams.
There's a requirement for 45 days of work experience via an industry placement to get your qualification.
You'll need GCSEs at level 4 (C) or above to study on this course.
The subsidiary year leads on to the BTEC Level 3 (Extended) Diploma in Construction and the Built Environment, which can also be studied full-time or part-time.
After successfully completing the extended year you could enter employment or choose to study at HNC or degree level.
