T Level Construction
This qualification, which is 1100 guided learning hours, is for you if you want to start a career as, for example, a building engineering technician, civil engineering technician or construction supervisor. It is designed for post-16 students and is an ideal qualification if you are intending to progress directly to employment within the construction industry, to a construction apprenticeship or to further studies in construction.
What is the Construction Industry?
The construction industry is of global importance and worth £90 billion annually in the UK. The impact that the construction industry has on daily life is diverse, from domestic building, maintenance and the provision of key building services, to large projects in civil engineering, providing essential public infrastructure in the form of roads, schools and hospitals.
All careers in construction require good communication skills, time management, a strong customer focus and the ability to work both in teams and with other trades. The skills learned for craft trades lead not only to a rewarding career but can also be used as a foundation from which to progress to advanced craft, technician, supervisory or management occupations, where established professional development routes and occupational standards exist.
