Assessment Methods

  • Portfolio of Evidence

  • Why choose this qualification?

    These qualifications are intended to provide learners with a broad introduction to the construction sector, equipping learners with underpinning knowledge and skills specific to the sector alongside a range of transferable employability skills. They are designed to support progression to further learning and ultimately to work in construction or other related sectors.

    The Skills for Construction qualifications form part of our Suite of Skills qualifications that cover a number of sectors and are available at Entry 3, Level 1 and Level 2. The employability skills units are common across the suite, enabling easy transfer of credits between qualifications and supporting opportunities for cross-faculty working.

    The qualifications have been developed with the support of a number of further education colleges, training providers and adult and community learning providers. They have been designed to be consistent with the principles for study programmes for 16-19 year olds but are also relevant, particularly in the case of the smaller qualifications, for adults including the unemployed. These qualifications are also suitable for pre 16 learners.

    Rules of Combination

    Learners must complete the two mandatory units from Group M, totalling 6 credits.
