As well as working in the college’s state-of-the-art construction workshop you will also get the opportunity to go on site tours and industry visits. Each tour or visit is closely linked to the units you are working on at the time so you can apply the work taught in college to the real working environment. You will have the opportunity to take photographs of work being carried out and will be able to ask questions on site to further your knowledge.

There is a great emphasis on students being ‘work ready’ and work experience plays a large part in this. The college has outstanding links to industry and there are chances to take part in community building projects. Additional learning goals developed in conjunction with local employers will enhance your CV so you will be well prepared to enter the construction industry at level 3.

For selected programmes students will have the opportunity to participate in an Industry Placement. This will comprise of 315 hours of placement in an area linked to the selected programme of study. If this is the case, your course manager will contact you in due course to discuss further.
