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?
From learning how to wire lighting and power circuits, understanding magnetism and alternating current theory, through to designing, testing and commissioning wiring systems, you will learn the ins and outs of the trade, preparing you for a successful career.
Work experience will play a vital role in your progression as you will have the opportunity to work on live projects out on site. We will support you to complete around 300 hours of work experience during the academic year, giving you valuable employability skills alongside your real site experience.
As well as getting out to work in the industry, you also will benefit from visits from professionals and trips to construction sites to see how different trades work together to complete projects.
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.
