This new programme provides the vocational knowledge and skills necessary for a career in a variety of disciplines including architecture, building services engineering, civil engineering, construction management, maintenance, planning, surveying and more.
It’s been specifically designed for you if you’re progressing from an Advanced Apprenticeship in a relevant area, or if you’ve got significant work experience in the industry and want to become a manager. It’s eligible for a grant from the CITB grants scheme.
You’ll apply critical reasoning and analysis techniques to solve built environment and engineering problems using industry standards, appropriate codes of practice and work-based evidence.
You’ll study towards an NVQ Level 5 in Construction Management (Sustainability) and a Higher National Diploma in Construction and the Built Environment.
You’ll specialise in one of three pathways: building services engineering; construction and the built environment; or civil engineering.
The units you study will depend on the pathway you select, but may include areas such as:
- sustainable construction
- design and management principles
- energy utilisation and efficiency
- environmental management
- civil engineering technology
- structural analysis and design

Other combinations of qualifications and experience will also be considered, as will Level 3 qualifications not currently listed on the UCAS tariff.
You’ll need to be employed in the construction industry, having completed an Advanced Apprenticeship, or be wanting to progress to a technician or management role.
We would expect students to be working at Level 2 or above in English Language and Maths.
If you are a mature learner returning to the industry with appropriate qualifications or experience, you are welcome to apply.
If you already have an HNC you should be able to complete the course in one year.
|Teaching & assessment||
Assessment will be related to work-based activities and will include project design, presentations, report writing, and research.
There is a clear and specific employer demand for successful candidates from this programme.
Alternatively, this Level 5 qualification will give you the opportunity to move onto further undergraduate studies in construction management, building services and other related disciplines.
