What's Involved

This is a two-year full-time course and is delivered at our Rainham Construction Campus. It aims to provide you with a diverse range of units in order to develop your knowledge of professional roles within the industry.

At the end of the first year, students will have achieved enough credits to be awarded with the Foundation Diploma and those that progress and complete the second year will be awarded the Extended Diploma. The course has been designed to ensure that you learn a vast array of different construction disciplines within the sector and by the end of the course you will be in a prime position to understand the requirements of different roles within the industry.

You can expect to study: 

  • Construction Principles, Design and Technology
  • Tending and Estimating
  • Health and Safety
  • Surveying in Construction
  • Graphical Detailing
  • Building Regulations
  • Management of Construction Projects
  • Building Surveying
  • Work Experience
  • Project in Construction
  • BIM
  • Quantity Surveying
  • Property Law

As this course has been designed with employers in mind, our assessment methods also replicate submissions that extend practical knowledge whilst developing academic understanding. Assessments can be in the form of written academic assignments, written reports, presentations, project-based assessments, group or individual presentations and practical demonstrations.

The BTEC Extended Diploma is an academic course, equivalent to 3 A Levels. Students must have achieved a Level 2 in Functional Skills English and Maths or a grade 4 in English Language and Maths GCSE to study this course.
