Who is it for
The BTEC Nationals in Construction and the Built Environment have been developed in the Construction and the Built Environment sector to:
• give education and training for construction and the built environment employees from a range of sectors within the industry.
• give opportunities for construction and the built environment employees to achieve a nationally recognised Level 3 vocationally–specific qualification. This could be in Construction, Civil Engineering or Building Services.
• give learners the opportunity to develop a range of skills and techniques, personal skills and attributes essential for successful performance in working life.
This course is ideal for those that are new to the Construction industry or are changing careers from another area. Employment in the Construction industry would certainly prove to be an advantage, but not essential.
