This two year part-time course is aimed at those wishing to further their academic qualifications and enhance their career opportunities within the Construction industry.
All applicants are individually assessed on their qualifications, skills and experience. You should have a desire to further your career in the construction industry and hold either a ‘Level 3 NVQ Diploma or BTEC Level 3 Diploma in construction, or BTEC National Award or A Levels or equivalent GCSE or equivalent in maths and English or willingness to work towards. International applicants require a current IELTS 5.5 score, with no single skill being below 5. Accreditation may be given for prior learning both academic and work based.
Edexcel BTEC Higher Nationals are designed to provide a specialist vocational programme, linked to professional body requirements and National Occupational Standards. They offer a strong, sector-related emphasis on practical skills development alongside the development of requisite knowledge and understanding.
The qualification provides a thorough grounding in the key concepts and practical skills required in their sector and their national recognition by employers allows direct progression to employment. A key progression path for Edexcel BTEC HNC students is to an honours degree programme, this depending on the match of the Edexcel BTEC Higher National units to the degree programme in question. Typical degrees at UCEM and university of Wolverhampton in construction related discipline should allow access to second year of that course.

I wanted a complete change in career and had always considered becoming an architect. When I came to an SCG Open Evening, tutors suggested the route of Higher Education in Construction. It is a great hands-on course and I especially enjoyed learning about CAD, as this is a skill I need to become an architect.
