Course content

An Apprenticeship is a job with an accompanying skills development programme designed by employers in the sector. It allows the apprentice to gain technical knowledge and real practical experience, along with functional and personal skills, required for their immediate job and future career. These are acquired through a mix of learning in the workplace, formal off the job training and the opportunity to practice and embed new skills in a real work context. This broader mix differentiates the Apprenticeship experience from training delivered to meet narrowly focused job needs.

The Level 3 Advanced Apprenticeship in Construction Management is aimed at learners who want to develop their Engineering and management skills, gaining the knowledge, skills and understanding in a more flexible and practical way. The Framework allows for a number of pathways and is suitable for a range of job roles.

This framework includes the following occupations at Advanced (Level 3).

Advanced (Level 3)

· Built Environment and Design

· Construction Contracting Operations

· Civil Engineering for Technicians

There are two element to the Framework, first theoretical Knowledge that will be assessed by achieving a Level 3 BTEC in Construction and the Built Environment, and Second Knowledge gained at work that is assessed by NVQs.

There are twelve units to complete over the two years:

       · Civil Engineering Pathways:

       · Health, Safety and Welfare in Construction and the Built Environment

       · Sustainable Construction

       · Mathematics in Construction and the Built Environment

       · Science and Materials in Construction and the Built Environment

       · Construction Technology and Design in Construction and Civil Engineering

       · Surveying in Construction and Civil Engineering

       · Construction in Civil Engineering

       · Graphical Detailing in Construction and the Built Environment

       · Structural Mechanics in Construction and Civil Engineering

       · CAD & design for Construction

       · Further Mathematics in Construction and the Built Environment

       · Project in Construction and the Built Environment 


       Outline of skills and knowledge

The focus is on developing skills in design, analysis and evaluation across a range of Civil Engineering or Building Services topics.

Progression from this Pathway:

There will be a wide range of opportunities that apprentices can be involved with in a structured career path, such as building, civil engineering and specialist occupations. After gaining work experience in the chosen occupational area this apprenticeship will enable


· NVQ Level 6 Diploma in Construction Contracting Operations

· NVQ Level 6 Diploma in Construction Site Management



· Construction and the Built Environment

· Civil Engineering

· Building Services Engineering

· Construction

· Construction Management

How will I be assessed?

Technical certificate will be Centre devised assignments are mostly used to continuously assess over the two years. In addition there are occasional open-book class based tests. NVQ will be assessed on-site
