Who is this course for?Typically as an apprentice you will need to be involved in construction or civil engineering work within your job role. Roles that would be suitable for this apprenticeship include site engineer, site manager or project manager.
This Higher Apprenticeship is for those wishing to commence a professional career within construction or civil engineering. You will undertake the Level 4 Higher National Certificate in Construction and the NVQ Level 4 in Construction Management, both highly recognised qualifications within the construction industry.
These professional qualifications provide the perfect foundation for a career in construction or civil engineering. They are the basis from which you can progress on to a HND or a degree apprenticeship.
You will attend UCS for one full day per week and be expected to complete written assignment work in self-study time at home.
Teaching and Assessment
Teaching on the HNC will be based on four lectures during one day a week, with the option for additional tutorial support. Assessment is primarily assignment and project-based.
Throughout the two years a work-based Assessor will visit you in the workplace and work with you through the Level 4 NVQ. This requires you to fulfil a national occupational standard to Level 4 which is integrated into your job role.
Progression OpportunitiesOn completion of your apprenticeship, you will be able to progress on to a higher level of study to complete your Higher National Diploma (HND).
Entry RequirementsTypically, students will have achieved a Level 3 qualification within construction or similar, however it is possible to commence the course without a formal Level 3 qualification and suitability will be discussed during your interview.
