We are offering a new Higher Level Apprenticeship in Construction and the Built Environment for those wanting to develop a career in the management and professional side of construction.

The Level 4 apprenticeship provides a combination of theory based learning, along with on the job training which works well for both employers and apprentices. Apprentices will spend one day a week at UCB working towards a HNC in Construction and the Built Environment. The remainder of the week will be spent with an employer where they will learn practical construction skills and gather evidence for an NVQ Level 4 under the guidance of a mentor and a work based assessor.

Apprentices will study a range of subjects related to the construction industry and will develop skills in areas such as building measurement, construction technology, practice and management, construction materials and sustainability and construction drawing, detailing and specification.

Completion of the course can lead to progression onto a construction related degree or onto employment as an Architect, Project Manager, Building Engineer, Quantity Surveyor and a Structural Engineer.

John Bamford, Course Leader for the HNC in Construction and the Built Environment, said: “This new apprenticeship is perfect for anyone wanting to develop or advance their skills in construction. It will provide apprentices with a broad knowledge of the construction industry whilst learning practical skills in their employment and obtaining the qualifications that employers are looking for.”
