The Challenge

Create either a blog, powerpoint/prezzi presentation, or video based on one of the topics you’ll be learning on your course. Click through to the ‘Studies Include’ section of your chosen course to see a list of options. Bring that topic to life by creating some content to introduce it!

For example, Level 1 Bricklaying covers Constructing Cavity Walls. You could make a blog, presentation, or video about how cavity walls and other techniques help to make buildings more energy efficient, comparing this to outdated practices of the past.
