Riley, Built Environment

"This course gave me a rough idea of what to expect after college with an overview on general joinery, brickwork, plumbing and electrical work. I also gained skills in teamwork and problem solving which I now use in my apprenticeship. After I have completed my apprenticeship and gained enough experience I would like to set up my own business."

Ross, Construction Lecturer

“On completing the Built Environment course, a range of opportunities within the construction industry are available to students, the aim of the course is to use it as a stepping stone into the construction industry, helping students gain knowledge and practical skills that will help them gain employment.”
