BTEC construction courses available at all levels.

By James Finlay Subscribe to RSS | November 29th 2011 | Views:

The UK has one of the strongest construction industries in the world. There are over 250 000 firms employing 2.1 million people in a multitude of roles but when times are hard, companies seek to cut costs, and hope to survive until the uptrend comes. As a result, they're forced into taking a short-term position, cutting back on training and reducing their investment in the future.

Recruitment, in particular graduate recruitment is one of the areas that suffers. So the first wave of graduates who have actually paid for their education through student fees may find the job they want at the end of it just simply isn't there.

An ideal way for learners to acquire the craft skills and knowledge they will need to enter the many vocations within the construction industry, or simply want to evoke in their current job is a BTEC in Construction.

If you want to try out a range of related activites then a BTEC first in Construction may be the course for you. Students may follow a general path using a range of different specialist units, or one of the recommended specialist pathways that offer greater depth. For those who are already in a specialist field wanting to advance their skills, there are particular courses available.

Learners wishing to go straight from a BTEC First into employment will be ready with the skils, know-how and understanding to enter any of the next occupations: bricklayer, carpenter and joiner, painter and decorator, plasterer, roof slater and tiler, dry liner, wall and floor tiler and construction operative.

Those beginning their careers or those in employment wishing to improve their knowledge could all benefit from a BTEC in construction. Level 2 or Level 3 BTECs on a part-time basis are available for those already employed in the construction sector. Knowledge and expertise gained in the workplace is valued.

The Level 3 qualification (BTEC Nationals in Construction) in Construction, Civil Engineering or Building Services is nationally recognised.

Whilst some BTEC's are for those improving their skills, others are there to help already capable specialists achieve a greater fairness and efficiency with contractors and customers. This sort of BTEC provides a comprehensive programme of contractual training courses which are aimed at meeting the fundamental needs of specialist companies.

The BTEC Construction course has been designed specifically to provide a broad appeal and is therefore targeted at all construction staff members and with any involvement in any aspect of building or civil engineering contracts, subcontracts or supply contracts at a supervisory or management level.

There are a variety of BTEC construction courses available, ranging from general skilled courses, to dispute avoidance courses. Have the qualifications to back up your experience, even though lots have never needed the qualifications before, it is now the only way that construction workers are finding themselves unaffected by the financial crisis.
