Pearson BTEC Level 5 HNC Diploma In Construction and the Built Environment

Provided by Global School of Technology and Management - GSTM

Course introduction


The content of the programmes should be based on the core curriculum that supports the appropriate specialist content for a discipline or disciplines within the construction, building services engineering pathwaysProgrammes and courses should develop learner’s knowledge, understanding, skills and awareness necessary to provide them with the potential to progress to technical, supervisory and managerial positions in construction, building services engineering and civil engineering.Programmes should make provision for:
  • Sufficient time to achieve consistency of learning outcome standards and, when coupled with enhanced further learning, will enable learners to achieve the educational base required for an incorporated engineer.
  • Both breadth and depth of coverage to meet the needs of industry in relation to technical and personal skills.
  • The development of higher-level skills.
  • The foundation for subsequent study and developing a commitment to lifelong learning.

All courses should include the development of learner skills in managing and developing themselves, working with others and being part of a team, communicating, managing tasks, solving problems, applying numeracy, IT, design and creativity. An understanding of health, safety, environmental and sustainability issues, and the need to design, install and maintain safe systems of work, is essential and courses should expose learners to these issues, hazards and risk assessment, environment and legal requirements.
