KS4 Edexcel BTEC Construction and the Built Environment Level 2:

What is covered on the course?

Discover the world of construction. The BTEC construction course will enable learners to interpret and analyse the information given before starting a task, and identify the infrastructure that needs to put in place to run a job efficiently and safely. Students will also develop a broad understanding of the built environment. Students will examine how client needs can shape building design, and will develop their own design ideas to a given brief.
