About the course

The Level 4 units lay the foundations for learning by providing a broad introduction to construction and different civil engineering functions. This develops and strengthens core skills while preparing students for specialist subjects at Level 5 or to enter employment with the qualities necessary for job roles that require some personal responsibility.Students will gain a wide range of construction and civil engineering knowledge linked to practical skills gained through research, independent study, directed study and workplace scenarios. By the end of Level 4, students will have sound knowledge of a wide range of concepts in construction and civil engineering. They will be competent in a range of subject-specific skills as well as in general skills and qualities relevant to key areas of construction and civil engineering.
