The HNC Construction is an exciting programme which focuses on the key knowledge and skills required by a technician employed in a construction management role. The qualification will cover management principles and will include a specialist core that embraces the management of construction organisations and human resources, together with basic construction planning and elements of site administration. Through studying the HNC Construction, you will develop contemporary vocational skills including study, research, analysis, planning and organisational skills. You will also learn to take responsibility for your own learning and the ability to be flexible and to work co-operatively with others. Completion of the HNC will enable you to achieve appropriate professional body recognition in particular, but not exclusively, from the Chartered Institute of Building. It will support progression to the HND or into employment within the sector. During your studies you will acquire practical experience with emerging technologies (such as 3D printing and computer-aided design); as well as this you will also be taught by staff with extensive industrial experience and get a grounding in the legal responsibilities and health and safety of construction management. The HNC Construction develops knowledge and skills in areas such as construction materials and specifications, site surveying, construction technology (substructure/industrial/commercial superstructure), site administration, and standard forms of construction contracts. Achievement of the HNC prepares you for further higher education qualifications such as a the HND Construction Management, as well as the option to enter the industry to start your working career in construction. Graduates often enter roles such as construction managers, site managers, project managers, design managers and CAD/BIM technicians to name a few.
