Construction Contracting Operations - Planning Pathway

Level 3
18 Months

Construction Planners are also known as Project Managers and they make sure the construction project undertaken is built with the right resources to the correct quality and cost, on time and safely. Management of a construction project can be an extremely complex task, depending on the scope of the project. A good construction plan provides a framework for the construction planner to follow.
The Level 3 Construction Contracting Operations qualification has been developed for delivery in a working environment. It has been designed to develop and recognise your skills, knowledge and
competence so that you can work in Site Technical Support within the construction industry or progress onto further learning.

Who is this suitable for?

This course is designed for both new and experienced planners working within the construction sector who are looking to advance, develop new skills and knowledge and progress within their employment. This is an academic and competency based qualification.
