In Construction our students all work towards the BTEC Level 1 Award/Certificate in Introduction to Construction. This qualification has been designed to provide basic training in construction skills for those seeking employment in the construction industry. The qualification is suitable for use with learners who have no previous experience or knowledge of construction skills.
Students study a range of modules including Producing a Timber Product, Developing Trowel Skills, Health and Safety, Careers in the Construction Industry, Painting and Decorating skills and Home Improvement Skills. The modules require both theory and practical assignments to be completed.
The Level 1 Award/Certificate in Introduction to Construction is awarded to successful candidates on completion of the required combination of credits. Seven credits are required to achieve the Award, and 13 credits are required to achieve the Certificate.
The Lead for Construction is Kenny Hill.
