Part Time

The BTEC Subsidiary Diploma and Diploma programmes in Construction and Civil Engineering are part-time (day-release) courses which are intended to provide students who are employed within the industry, opportunities to develop their academic ambitions towards qualification as construction or civil engineering technicians. Students commence their studies on the Subsidiary Diploma and should their first year performance be satisfactory, they may progress to the final year of the Diploma programme.




Students who enrol upon the programmes often come from a range of backgrounds including school leavers who are embarking upon their careers and also those who already have experience of working within the industry. 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 are available within the industry.




The programmes are broad-based in terms of content, and combine 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.
