About These Qualifications:

These qualifications focus on helping learners to develop practical workplace skills in their specific subject area, with the ultimate aim of pursuing a career in the trade of their choice.

Though the teaching will be practical and skills based, there will be theory elements to support the practical work. Learners will develop specialised skills that will facilitate their transition into the workplace, with the potential to progress to management and overseer roles.

About this Course

Property Maintenance Operations

Learners explore the mechanisms of buildings including electrical, plumbing, plant, safety systems and equipment. They learn how to provide first and immediate response to fault finding, ensuring the prevention of major damage and minimising reactive intervention.

Bricklaying, Site Carpentry & Painting and Decorating

Learners carry out work experience with an external company, allowing them to put their classroom skills into practice. This can help secure an apprenticeship, employment or assist you with your application for university. We recommend that you start thinking about your placement as soon as you have applied for your course, considering which potential employers you may want to undertake the placement with to help you get the most out of the experience.


These courses are assessed by online assessment and a portfolio of evidence detailing practical tasks.



These courses support learners who wish to move into a trade career, either employed or self-employed. Learners who complete their courses can look into completing further qualifications at higher levels or moving into further specialised areas, such as plumbing, electrics or facilities management.
