Develop the skills, knowledge and confidence to take on the role of construction supervisor and lay the foundations for a fulfilling career in construction management with our Construction Site Supervisor Apprenticeship. Study for a Certificate of Higher Education in Site Management while you work, with no tuition fees.
This apprenticeship is ideal if you're looking to start a career in construction management or aspire to advance your existing role and open doors for future career opportunities. As well as providing you with the skills and knowledge to support your role as a construction supervisor, successful completion of this course will enable you to progress onto our Construction Site Management Degree Apprenticeship, achieve a full BSc (Hons) degree and lay the foundations for a fulfilling career in construction management.
Construction site supervisors are tasked with the supervision of specialist contractors and workers on construction projects and play a key role in ensuring projects are delivered safely and efficiently.
Our course has been developed using the Government-approved construction site supervisor trailblazer standards. This means that the course incorporates all the knowledge, skills and behaviours as defined by employers 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 Supervisor Apprenticeship is delivered on a day release basis at either ARU Peterborough or on our Chelmsford campus.
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.
