This Higher Technical Qualification (HTQ) is designed to meet the requirements of specific Occupational Standards. This course is designed for those who have experience of working in construction and looking to enhance their career prospects in the industry. You will also learn the techniques of how site investigation and evaluation can influence the design, construction, and maintenance of buildings and their substructures. We will provide opportunities for you to develop your skills in using analytical methods and statistics to solve problems as well as an understanding of the properties and structural behaviour of construction materials. You will also discover how market forces and government policies influence the construction industry. Students will gain a wide range of construction knowledge linked to practical skills gained through research, independent study, directed study and workplace scenarios. Students are involved in vocational activities that help them to develop behaviours (the attitudes and approaches required for a competence) and transferable skills. Transferable skills are those such as communication, teamwork, research and analysis, which are highly valued in higher education and in the workplace. By the end of Level 4, students will have sound knowledge of the basic concepts of construction. They will be competent in a range of subject-specific skills as well as in general skills and qualities relevant to key areas of construction. Course Highlights: Our fully qualified and professional staff are all experienced construction practitioners, having worked as site operatives, site managers, and quantity surveyors. Our links with employers and the ways in which we incorporate this into your learning, with employers attending our popular employability events, is a key distinguishing feature of the College.
