Why study the Onsite Construction T Level?
The Labour Market Information (LMI) from the Office for National Statistics has highlighted that demand for employees in the construction trades has increased by 60% this year alone indicating a clear demand for trained construction personnel. Additionally, research from CITB shows that only 30% of construction students progress into those higher-earned skilled brickwork jobs, meaning they will have to return to education to gain the additional skills needed to progress. Whereas choosing to study the Onsite Construction T Level, you will gain high-quality teaching and training allowing you to go straight into skilled employment.
Hear from Geoffrey Guy, Head of Department for Land-Based at Bishop Burton College:
“With statistics indicating that demand for employees in construction trades have increased roughly 60% nationally a T Level in on-site construction at Bishop Burton College not only serves local and national industry but our excellent resources; including state of the art construction workshop and one of a kind simulated construction site allows students to access a range of specialist equipment and training to prepare them for work or further study.
The T Level enhances our current curriculum, which is focused on practical vocational skills, by offering a slightly more academic route. Practical competence is still integral but the T Level provides a step up in terms of the theoretical knowledge required for further study or taking on roles with additional responsibility for planning, site management, or health and safety as just a few examples.
The increased focus on industry engagement, which is integral to a T Level, also means that through the introduction of industry placement cards by CSCS students have more access than ever before to construction sites to help them develop skills for work and a true understanding of the industry. The T Level resources and additional industry engagement provided for students is integral to our values at Bishop Burton of providing a first-class, first choice technical education.”
