Construction & Civil Engineering

The construction industry is continuing to grow in response to huge demands for private and social housing, new schools, expanded infrastructure and the rise in the need for trained professionals in this area. Completing a qualification in construction, civil engineering & the built environment gives you the opportunity to build an exciting, fast moving, developing and rewarding career in construction.

As a college, we offer a range of construction courses at a variety of levels, from preparation (Level 4) up to HNC (Level 7) which support you in your career development or prepare you for employment within the construction industry.

We have excellent links with local employers and related organisations to benefit our students by bringing in knowledgeable speakers from construction companies such as Morrison Construction and Bellway, Civil Engineering Contractors Association, Institute of Civil Engineers and many more. Working closely with industry, we organise site visits and work placement opportunities which help build skills and experience, preparing you for opportunities in the work place.
