Skills and Knowledge Development: The Level 4 BTEC Higher National Certificate in Construction and The Built Environment (Civil Engineering) offers students a broad introduction to the subject area via a mandatory core of learning, as well as units within general ‘pathways’, whilst allowing for the acquisition of skills and experience through the selection of a further (Level 4) unit across a range of occupational sectors. This effectively builds underpinning core skills, with general specialisation; preparing the student for further specialisation at Level 5. Students will gain a wide range of sector knowledge tied to practical skills gained in research, self-study, directed study and workplace scenarios.

Why study with us?
Students’ core skills are ultimately tested in the Group Building Services Integrative Project modules, via formal presentation to a panel of industry experts selected for their particular experience and expertise within the field of building services. Students are interviewed and questioned on their submission, and their ability to ‘think on their feet’ is tested in conjunction with the management skills acquired during the programme of study.Apply Now »
