What career opportunities can this lead to?

The HNC should enable students to go straight into the second year of some construction degree courses. Alternatively if you decide to continue in employment, your HNC will open up a range of opportunities. The HNC construction qualification also provides entry to many higher level professional qualifications in Quantity Surveying, Construction Management, Building Surveying, Property Management and Architectural Design. There is also an opportunity to progress to HND level 5 through a further 2 years of study.

What are the entry requirements?

You must be a minimum age of 18.
Have a good standard of literacy and IT skills.
Appropriate attainment on a previous course of study, eg.
NVQ 3 in a construction related trade, Construction and Built Environment Level 3, National Certificate or prior experience within the Construction Industry.

What does this programme involve?

The content of the course is broad based and covers most standard aspects of building including:

Group Project
Health, Safety &Welfare
Individual Student Project

How is the programme taught and assessed?

All course assessments are carried out through a series of assignments, which are marked by your college tutors. This wide coverage of building subjects will allow you to have a better understanding of all aspects of building from design and costing, to contract and construction. The course is focused on the specific needs of the 'contracting' industry and will provide students with the requisite knowledge, concepts, techniques and skills to enable them to effectively fulfil their existing and future managerial responsibilities.

What else do I need to know?

The HNC is offered as a day release programme over 2 years (280 glh per year) and is an essential qualification for those who wish to progress to professional and management level careers within the construction industry. There is an expectation for students to self-study for a minimum of 4 hours per week. You will be taught by experienced construction professional from various disciplines.
