Course Information


There are no formal entry requirements for this course but students who have National 5 qualifications will have an advantage in progressing into the professional career routes.

While this is a practical, trade-based qualification, we are hoping to engage students in trade subjects and showcase the professional careers available in industry to help close the gender gap and meet the growing demand for females in the wider construction sector.
