One Awards Access to HE Built Environment Diploma

27th September 2021 Date of publication

Have you considered offering the One Awards Access to HE Built Environment Diploma?

Construction is a major sector of the UK economy. It generates almost £90 billion annually and employs in excess of 2.93 million people, the equivalent of about 10% of UK employment (BIS). Many construction workers are retiring, and the rate of retirement looks set to increase over the next few years. Many current vacancies in the wider construction sector are persistent and hard to fill because employers cannot recruit staff with the right skills, qualifications or experience, and the demand is forecast to rise even further.

The Access to HE Built Environment Diploma is designed to engage students in the knowledge and skills required to study at HE level within the construction or built environment sectors. The Diploma is also suitable for those who have worked in the industry trade and wish to progress their career prospects within the sector.

The units within the Diploma cover current industry practice, use of technology and ecology. Students will develop a knowledge and understanding of the issues relating to the building of structures in the natural environment along with the importance of good design.
