Introduction


The BTEC Extended Diploma programme in Construction and Civil Engineering


is a two year full-time course, which is intended to provide students with


opportunities either to develop their academic ambitions towards


qualification as technicians within the industry or to become undergraduate


students studying related degree programmes at university.




Students who enrol upon the programme often come from a range of


backgrounds including school leavers who intend to develop careers towards


professions related to construction and civil engineering, and also those who


might already have experience of working within these industries. A typical


cohort will therefore include students who have recently gained appropriate


formal qualifications at GCSE level, and also those who have qualified in those


various disciplines and crafts which form an essential part of the industry.




The programme is broad-based in terms of content, and combines both


academic and practical subjects to provide a general introduction to the


issues and objectives which exist in the design and construction of buildings


and civil engineering projects. In general terms, areas of study include such


diverse fields as science, technology, design and management, which are


supplemented by laboratory work, surveying fieldwork, drawing, computing


and site visits.




The course is made up of eighteen units as follows;




Year 1; Health, Safety and Welfare

How you will gain the qualification

Assessment is undertaken through written submission, time-controlled


examination and practical assessment, and is subject to both Edexcel and


Coleg Cambria assessment procedures. Assessments are set by tutors at


Coleg Cambria and are externally moderated to ensure that Edexcel
