Course SummaryThis Level 4 programme is specifically designed for individuals who want to take their Level 3 learning in Construction to the next level with a focus on construction site supervision and management. Whilst students who have studied at Level 3 will have been introduced to construction management, this course gives them the opportunity to build on that knowledge. In particular, it will: give students the skills, knowledge and understanding they need to achieve high performance in the international construction environment develop students with enquiring minds, who have the abilities and confidence to work across different business functions and to lead, manage, respond to change, and tackle a range of complex construction situations provide the core skills required for a range of careers in construction, specifically those related to management and operations offer a balance between employability skills and the knowledge essential for students with entrepreneurial, employment or academic ambitions develop students’ understanding of the major impact that new digital technologies have on the construction environment provide insight into international business operations and the opportunities and challenges presented by a global marketplace equip students with knowledge and understanding of culturally diverse organisations, cross-cultural issues, diversity and values, and to allow flexible study to meet local and specialist needs. Students have the option to study this programme full-time for one year which will involve a commitment of 2 days per week at College or part-time over two years which will mean attending College 1 day a week. The part-time option may be more appropriate for students who are already working in the construction industry but who want to upskill to a higher level qualification whilst retaining an income. * Course subject to validation.
