Construction BTEC Level 3 at Fulham College Boys' School

Course description

Students will combine specialist knowledge with hands on experience as they plan, design and build a small house on site. Students will carry out 1st and 2nd fi x wiring, plumbing and carpentry tasks. There is also an option to reduce the number of specialist units in order to further develop practical skills.

Course content

Students taking this course are ideally set to enter all aspects of the construction industry. Those wishing to take up a trade such as plumbing or electrics will have gained hands on experience along with the theoretical knowledge required to take up roles such as Project Manager or Architectural Technician.

Links with local and national construction companies mean that many of our students have excellent prospects of gaining a place on an apprenticeship scheme. Combining the Construction and Business course would suit students hoping to run their own business.

The Level 3 qualifi cation is a university entry level course should students wish to pursue that option.

Entry requirements

A qualifi cation at level 2 is desirable but not essential.
