New University-level Construction Course Launched

Following a £7.5m investment in its latest building, University Centre Farnborough has developed a new programme to plug a training gap in Construction Management.

The new programme, the HNC in Construction and the Built Environment, will provide aspiring Construction Managers with the skills needed to drive their career to the next level and discover new job opportunities.


To make the training programme as accessible as possible, the teaching takes place over two days per week when studied over one year, or over just one day when studied over two years – making the programme an attractive prospect for those already working in industry.

For potential students who don’t feel ready to study on a higher level course, a new transitional course has also been developed for anyone who has been away from the classroom for some time, or found themselves in a job role without certain qualifications. The Access to Higher Education Construction course is now available to bring these students up to speed, providing both the study skills and confidence to start a new qualification.

The training takes place at University Centre Farnborough, which shares its campus with Farnborough College of Technology.

Head of Faculty for Construction and Engineering, David Barker said:

“With this pair of new courses we can now provide the training that the local Construction industry needs for a new generation of leaders, working from the excellent platform we already have as an ‘Ofsted Outstanding’ provider of Apprenticeships and Technical Courses.

“We especially look forward to working closely with local firms to provide them with the leaders they need to grow their businesses, and would encourage them to make contact with us to discuss their needs.”

Aspiring Construction Managers can find out more about the two new courses by attending the next Open Event on Thursday 29 June 2017, from 4.00pm to 7.30pm.
