Construction and the Built Environment
Construction Site Engineering Technician, Higher Apprenticeship
What will I do on this course?
The Construction Site Engineering Technician standard is designed to create highly skilled employees who can contribute to the success of complex construction projects. You will achieve this by demonstrating skills, knowledge and behaviours in key aspects of construction engineering and the co-ordination of site activities as well as contributing to wider project objectives. Site engineering technicians will be working on construction sites and, as well as being able to deliver their own technical responsibilities, they will also need to supervise and co-ordinate a workforce involved in the delivery of trades activities and ensure their safety and the safety of others. There will also be some liaison with third parties such as design teams, clients and statutory authorities.
How will I be assessed?
Once you have demonstrated the relevant competence, completed the Level 4 qualification in Construction and the Built Environment and achieved Level 2 English and maths you will progress to the end-point assessment, which consist of two stages. Stage one consists of a written report of 1500-1600 words and stage two is a presentation and structured interview.
What could I do after this course?
You could progress to key job roles or move on to a Level 5 or Level 6 degree apprenticeship in the key construction management disciplines.
You will, typically, need five GCSEs at grade 9-4, including maths, English and a science; or a Level 2 apprenticeship.

"As well as my courses I have also had opportunities to represent the college on the opening evenings - which has really helped with my confidence. I have also felt supported and accepted in a traditionally male-dominated trade."
