This brand new Technical Diploma (3 x full A level equivalent) is designed for those students wishing to follow a professional but more site based carer pathway into the construction industry such as site management and supervisors. It has been designed by City & Guilds who are recognised as leaders in qualifications for the construction industry, and develops further, students' Level 2 knowledge and skills as well as covering surveying, building regulations and focussing more on the conversion and maintenance of existing buildings. The course is full time (720 hours over 2 years) and consists of 3 days per week in school and the other 2 days working with one of our partner employers such as Magenta living and SPIE. We also plan to provide in the near future, opportunities to develop basic skills in other areas such as Painting, decorating, tiling and plastering . Successful completion of the course allows students to continue on to study in a more focussed trade specific area , construction management courses at university at degree/HNC/D level OR apply directly for work as trainee site managers/supervisors/building trade professionals.
