Overview

This stimulating, learner-focused programme is delivered by highly professional teaching staff with significant Construction Industry experience and a proven track record of bringing out the best in their students.

Construction managers (also known as project managers, site managers and site agents) supervise and direct operations on a construction project, to make sure it is completed safely, on time and within budget. To do this well, a construction manager needs to be good at organising and planning, motivating and managing people and creatively solving problems.
