Construction Technical Level 3 Apprenticeship at North Lindsey College

Course description

Apprenticeships are employment-led programmes designed for young people aged 16 to 24. You will have a job with a construction company where you will earn real wages and combine this with learning technical skills. You will also come to College to develop your skills and to learn the underpinning knowledge required.

This apprenticeship is for those people with higher academic grades who wish to enter the construction industry, but not wishing to learn one of the trade disciplines.

Course content

You will be working towards two qualifications:
- Level 3 NVQ Diploma in Construction Site Supervision, comprising of six mandatory units:
