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.

The HNC in Construction Management is a technician level qualification that combines a broad-based Construction Industry specific curriculum with a more specialist curriculum that equips you with the skills required to advance your career in this specialist and highly demanding discipline.
