About the course
As an approved (CIOB) centre we offer this qualification which provides underpinning knowledge and skill to those individuals with the drive to develop themselves and ultimately improve career their prospects in construction management. Successful completion of the Certificate can lead to progression on to the two year part time Diploma. We offer a 'twilight scheme' with attendance early evening, one evening per week over one year for the Certificate and a further two years for the Diploma.
The Site Management qualification is aimed at both practicing and potential site managers in the construction industry, individuals should normally have at least two years’ experience on site above the level of trade charge hand, with some general responsibility. However, this does not always apply where applicants can demonstrate other appropriate experiences. Applicants do not have to be in employment in order to study, as a wide range of backgrounds and differing lengths and levels of experience are catered for within the units. The course has been designed with the practical entrant in mind, and gaining the Site Management Certificate and Diploma provides evidence to employers and clients that an internationally recognised level of study has been successfully completed. The course is open to advanced candidates, however, there is no restriction on age but an assessment by the Centre for suitability will be required. Students will need one of the following qualifications, plus relevant construction experience at a supervisory/managerial level:
- UCAS tariff Score 32-48 and relevant experience
- Level 3 S/NVQ, or equivalent, in a related subject
