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.



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 standards are complied with.


What qualifications you need

Candidates will usually be required to satisfy one of the


following:




• GCSE qualifications at Grade A* - C in at least four


subjects including Mathematics, a Science subject


and a subject requiring the use of written English


•BTEC ‘Certificate’ or ‘First Diploma’ in a related


subject


• Appropriate knowledge and/or experience gained at


work or from other related qualifications




Applications from students with appropriate alternative


qualifications and mature students with relevant


industrial experience are welcome and will be given


careful consideration.


Where to next

The Extended Diploma provides students with a


technical qualification which will be appropriate in


pursuing career ambitions in the following sectors of


the construction and civil engineering industries;




• Construction Management


• Architectural Technology


• Quantity Surveying


• Land and Building Surveying


• Civil and Structural Engineering
