  • A BTEC Level 3 Diploma in Construction is a practical, work-related course and is a natural progression after completing the Subsidiary Diploma in Construction.

    It is equivalent to two A levels which means when you have finished the course you can use it to get a job – or a better job if you are already working. Or you can use it alongside other qualifications to progress into higher education first.

    A BTEC Diploma is normally taken part-time and is equally suitable for school leavers and mature students
