The HNC in Construction is a partially work related course and is ideal for those wanting to continue their training to become chartered surveyors, site managers, architectural technicians, estimators or local authority inspectors. Students will be required to analyse real construction sites in order to give a practical dimension to projects and assignments, typically working in small groups to present ideas within a facilitated group setting. Assignments are designed to help you develop personal qualities such as a responsible and cooperative approach to working on your own and in groups. Course dates and times will be confirmed at interview.
