FOUNDATION APPRENTICESHIP Level 5 Construction Tues Thurs

This course is for S4 to S6 students keen to study the construction trade. The L5 Foundation Apprenticeship is designed for learners who are currently working at level 5 at school in construction related subjects, to enhance their skills. It offers learners a route to working directly with an employer via a project-based learning experience and enables them to develop both technical and meta-skills via a work-based project.

The project is co-designed and agreed by our partner employer and they make a structured and regular contribution to the programme. Learners develop technical and meta-skills based on work situations within the project and an understanding of the construction industry.
