Construction & the Built Environment at West Midlands Construction UTC
This is a City and Guilds TechBac that offers students an overview of the entire construction industry. Students will learn about the aspects of design, surveying, planning, project management, facilities management and build processes through a series of industry led projects. All of our projects will be based around real life construction scenarios and will make use of our purpose built construction facilities that will combine the best of vocational and academic education to create a 'vocademic' curriculum.
This course is equivalent to up to 3 GCSEs depending on options selected. Students will select a selection of GCSEs and other Vocational qualifications to support their chosen direction.
The course will explore all of the professional and technical aspects of the build process from design, to build and to value and use. In addition the impact of new technologies, and in particular Building Information Modeling (BIM) will feature heavily throughout the course. A detailed exploration of sustainable technologies and materials will also feature within the course.
There are no entry requirements for this course for students joining in year 10. Students joining in year 12 will need to achieve 5A*-E grades at GCSE including English and Maths. An interest in Construction and the Built Environment and/or IT is strongly recommended.
Assessment is a combination of internally assessed projects and a single externally assessed examination.
The Construction Industry makes up around 10% of the nation's workforce and is growing faster than much of the economy. Salaries are increasing rapidly year on year and over the next five years over 500 000 places will need to be filled. Our curriculum will prepare students to be exceptional employees in a wide range of professional and technical roles in the Built Environment including Architects, Interior Designers, Surveyors, Civil Engineers, Construction Managers, CAD CAM Engineers, BIM Engineers and a range of related IT positions.
