A subject in Construction and Surveying can open up a wide range of career opportunities from working as a carpenter to becoming a structural engineer.
Justin came to Eastleigh College after taking a year out of education to work part-time. He had previously studied A levels in Criminology, Psychology and Sociology at another college, but wasn’t sure where he wanted to go with his career.
Justin had always enjoyed maths at school and liked to draw in his spare time, but it wasn’t until a friend approached him about a job opening at an engineering company that he considered combining these interests in a career.
Justin secured an apprenticeship as a CAD Technician at Patterson Reeves Partners, where he then came to Eastleigh College once a week to study a Diploma in Construction & Built Environment. He learned the technical skills required for his role at College, and was then able to apply this in the workplace. While at Eastleigh College, Justin also completed a NVQ Level 3 Portfolio in Design.
