Construction covers the entire process involved in creating an infrastructure, from the handing the tools, vehicles and machinery, to managing teams of workers and learning health and safety principles. A construction career doesn't necessarily need to be limited to a private company – there are opportunities to work on projects with architects, local authorities and organisations such as English Heritage and the National Trust.
Generally studied by 16-18 year olds as an alternative to A-Levels.
