Level 3 Courses


Level 3 courses are equivalent to an A level. Most people in construction craft gain a level 1 and level 2 qualification in their chosen occupation. A level 2 qualification is usually gained through a modern apprenticeship framework where the person will be employed, but will spend a period of time, often one day per week, training at a college.

Some go on to achieve a L3 qualification, usually an NVQ (National Vocational Qualification) which is achieved through assessment by a qualified Assessor whilst working on site. 

Most people working as a craftsman in construction do not progress to higher levels of education, which is something we want to see change!

Currently, although not a terrific geographic spread of availability, there are a number of Level 3 courses and qualifications that can be taken/achieved:
