Maths and English
As part of your study programme you will also attend maths and English sessions and have the opportunity to improve your GCSE grades.
Health and Safety Awareness
To be able to go on a construction site, you need to have a certain level of knowledge and skills around health and safety. We'll help you gain these skills through specific training and by sitting the Health, Saftey and Environment test.
Throughout the course, we'll monitor your progress and provide constructive feedback to help you to improve where needed. We'll measure your skills and knowledge against nationally recognised standards specific to the construction area.
We assess you in a range of ways including practical tasks and projects from which you'll create a portfolio of evidence, set online exams and written coursework and assignments.
After this course, you can progress onto one of our Level 3 courses or an apprenticeship.
