South Thames College

Women in Construction - Level 1

Introduction

A chance to pick up the skills and knowledge to carry out a range of basic construction tasks such as painting and decorating, joinery and plastering. This course will give you the necessary skills to work on a construction site and be useful from day one. If you complete the course successfully, you'll leave the course with a CSCS card meaning you can work on a building site. Your course is shaped each year by the industry and local job opportunities to increase the chances of you finding work. You will be referred to this course through your Jobcentre Plus adviser. You can take this course and it won't affect your benefit status.

Assessment

A range of practical assessments in each area of work.

Entry Requirements

Three GCSEs grade A*-G including English or maths; OR other related qualifications and experience.

Materials

There may be materials you need to help with your studies. You'll either make a one-off payment for these when you enrol, or you'll buy them during the course. Your tutor will talk to you about this at interview or in your first class (if you don't need an interview).

Depending on your course and circumstances, you may be able to get funding to help with materials fees. Please check with us when you come in for interview or enrolment.

Next Steps

Move on to one of our Level 2 courses or look for work on a site.
