You’ll learn about the industry and about how construction projects are planned and resourced by people, trades and materials.
You can expect to have a go at everything before choosing which areas most take your interest. You’ll experience lots of hands-on learning in our dedicated workshop spaces at our specialist construction training centre at Basford Hall. You’ll be supported by tutors who have all had professional industry experience too.
This course is based at the Basford Hall Campus.
