Construction is everywhere and Milton Keynes is a hotspot for development. From housing, highways, warehousing and rail it is at the centre of the UK’s growing infrastructure, and you can be a part of it.
Construction is a lot more than just building, you are making homes for families, schools for children, hospitals for your community, and constantly improving and upgrading them as the industry develops.

What will I do?
You will learn how to design and build a variety of structures and buildings, from garden walls right up to skyscrapers. Covering everything from building basic masonry structures and cavity walling to construction technology, you will learn in a real life working environment both at the College and out in industry.
There will be opportunities for work experience, with trips to working construction sites and visits from specialist guest speakers.
At the end of your course you will have gained enough valuable work experience and industry contacts to kick off your career in the industry. You could also continue your studies, developing your skillset in your chosen trade.
Is it for me?
Do you prefer working with your hands rather than being behind a desk all day? There’s no denying that a career in this industry is primarily physical, however there are excellent progression opportunities within management and leadership too.
This course will suit people with a good eye for detail and the drive to complete work to the highest standards. Working as part of a team and a commitment to health and safety measures are also really important skills for anyone interested in this course.
