L1 Building Construction

Course Description

Teacher in Charge: Mr J. Ball

Building Construction is a hands-on course that leads to two qualifications: the National Certificate in Building, Construction, and Allied Trades Skills (BCATS) at Levels 1 and 2. Rather than focusing on any one trade, BCATS programmes build skills and an understanding of all trades in the construction industry. They also develop literacy, numeracy and communication skills and have close links with the NCEA and the Technology curriculum.

Students who participate in the Building Construction course can go on to consider apprenticeships in a variety of trades such as carpentry, brick and block laying, painting and decorating, flooring, joinery, plumbing and gas-fitting, frame and truss, aluminium joinery, etc. The programme also provides a good base for students who would like to enter other related areas of the construction industry such as architecture, quantity surveying and estimating.
