Shortlist

Course Overview
Entry to Construction Skills offers a fully supported programme for learners on the first step of their further education journey at college.

The programme will give young people the opportunity to break down any barriers they may have to learn, allowing them to grow and develop personally, socially and academically in order to successfully achieve their full potential and progress to their next level of learning or future employment.

The core curriculum will help learners to develop their confidence, life and employability skills in a supportive and welcoming atmosphere. They will choose a vocational route that interests them and undertake weekly practical workshops in the Construction Trade area. These include -

Bricklaying
Plastering
Carpentry and Joinery
Painting & Decorating
Electrical Installation
Plumbing Skills

Enrichment activities will develop skills in communication, teamwork and leadership, helping to build confidence and overcome any anxieties or social barriers. During these activities, learners will work towards a Prince’s Trust Achieve certificate and a Duke of Edinburgh Bronze award.

Literacy and numeracy development will be a core focus for all learners and once ready, learners will have the opportunity to undertake Essential Skills Wales qualifications in Communication and Application of Number.

This course offers lots of practical tasks which will also help develop your Maths, English and Digital Literacy skills.

Learners will be assigned a Progress Coach who will support them throughout their time on the programme. They will ensure that any ALN support is put in place before learners start and that any new support needs that may arise are incorporated into their programme to help them to succeed. The course is fully supported to meet individual needs and learning differences.

The programme is delivered over three days and will be a mixture of classroom, workshop and off site delivery.
Each learner will complete the WEST diagnostic assessments for literacy and numeracy. Students will work towards a range of units to help them achieve an Entry Life & Living Skills qualification, a Prince’s Trust Achieve qualification and a Duke of Edinburgh Bronze award to support further progression into Further Education or Work Based Learning.
The course is designed for learners working at Entry level and formal qualifications are not required for entry onto this course.

At Coleg Cambria we would encourage you to do the very best that you can in your exams. The better your grades the more options you will have, and may result in you gaining entry onto a higher level course.
Learners will be supported to plan their next steps throughout the course. Progression could be to one of the following:

A higher level course in a vocational area of your choice
Traineeship or apprenticeship programme.
Employment
A community based programme
Some courses may require equipment and/or uniforms to be purchased. This will be advised on the application.
