Construction success stories
The qualification is helping me to pursue a career in the construction sector, and my career goal is to progress at Esh group
There’s nothing else like it that gives you the theory as well as that experience in the workplace.
I had heard about the course from other friends and I thought it sounded like something I would enjoy and so far, that’s definitely been the case. It’s been really enjoyable so far – we have got really good friendships on the course and you meet lots of different people. Friends and family have been very supportive and very proud of me.
The course was practical and hands-on, and the assignments provided me with everything I needed to progress to the next level. I was set up so well for University and because of that I didn’t have to do a foundation year for my degree.
I think it’s the perfect course to do if you are interested in construction or management, I have learnt so much and there are so many paths you can go down once you have gained the qualification.
I was over the moon when I opened my results – it felt like recognition of the hard work I’ve put in during my time here.
The course catered perfectly to my desired career path. The structure of the course allowed for wider learning of the construction industry and the facilities at the College are modern and easily accessible.
