Overview

This course will introduce you to the construction industry as a whole, and will give you a taste of the different trades to help you decide which is the best career for you. You will gain a multi-skilled qualification and allowing you to progress in the area that interested you the most.

If you are unsure of your route into construction trades, this is a great course which gives you the opportunity to try out a range of trades including bricklaying, painting and decorating and carpentry, before choosing to specialise in one of the trade areas or to continue a multi skills route at Level 2.

Course description

As this course is a general introduction to a range of craft areas, you will become knowledgeable about the whole construction process, rather than specialising in just one trade. This will give you an ideal grounding in general construction and how each trade contributes to the completion of a successful project.

You will learn about each trade at our dedicated construction centre, where our workshops are fitted with the latest tools for you to get to grips with each trade. Tutors with a wealth of industry experience will help you to develop your learning and skills, so that you can become competent in a range of subjects.

Due to the current COVID-19 situation and with health and safety of our students as a priority, we have redesigned this course to include a mixture of classroom-based and online learning.

What areas will I study?

The routes you can choose with this qualification are in the following trades:

  • Tiling
  • Plastering
  • Brickwork

All routes will also include maths and English
