Enhance your knowledge and develop the skills and confidence to take on the role of an effective and efficient construction manager with our Construction Site Management Degree Apprenticeship. Study for an honour’s degree in construction management while you work, with no tuition fees.
This course forms part of the Construction Manager Apprenticeship Pathway which is delivered at our Chelmsford campus and at ARU Peterborough. Applications for the Construction Site Management Degree Apprenticeship (which forms the second part of the pathway) are currently open for our Chelmsford campus and will be available at ARU Peterborough from September 2023.
Our Construction Management Degree Apprenticeship is ideal if you're passionate about the built environment and want to play a leading role in the delivery of construction projects. The apprenticeship will give you the support, experience, skills and knowledge to play a key role in all aspects of construction management and lay the foundations for an exciting career path.
Construction site managers are tasked with ensuring that construction projects are completed safely, within agreed timescales and on budget. This includes ensuring safe systems of work are in place and adhered to by all staff and operatives, cost control, time management, minimising the impact on the environment and local community and that projects meet the required specification and quality demanded by the client.
Our course has been developed using the Government-approved construction management trailblazer standards. This means that the course incorporates all the knowledge, skills and behaviours as defined by employer's representative of the sector.
An apprenticeship is a job with training, combining practical experience with academic learning.
At least 20% of your contracted working hours will be classed as 'off-the-job'. This time will be dedicated to developing the knowledge and skills needed to meet the requirements of the apprenticeship, and therefore is not part of your usual work duties.
The off-the-job learning will be delivered through university-led learning sessions and activities, and practical learning experiences in your usual work setting.
Our Construction Site Management Degree Apprenticeship is delivered on a day release basis at our Chelmsford campus and will be available at ARU Peterborough from September 2024.
You will be assessed at the end of each module you undertake (on-programme assessments) which will contribute towards the final award of your qualification.
You will also undertake an End Point Assessment (EPA) to complete your apprenticeship when all on-programme assessments have been successfully passed.
The EPA for this apprenticeship is independently assessed and takes place when all on-programme assessments have been successfully passed.
The Chartered Institute of Building (CIOB) is the worlds largest professional body for construction management and leadership. CIOB accreditation is recognised as a mark of the highest levels of competence and professionalism in the development, conservation and improvement of the built environment.
