Course Content:

 

This is the second of two qualifications that form part of the BConstructive programme, designed specifically to provide a progressive pathway for secondary school students to integrate into a wide range of trade related occupations.  The design and content of this qualification is the result of extensive national consultation with secondary schools and Tertiary Education Organisations.

 

The National Certificate in Building, Construction and Allied Trades Skills (Level 2) includes compulsory standards that focus on the acquisition of theoretical and practical knowledge and skills that form the structural base of the qualification.

 

The range of skills and activities contained in the elective section provides an opportunity for schools to develop a flexible approach to learning.  This emphasis on the process of learning allows students to make informed choices on the subjects that are relevant and appropriate to their needs and purposes.

 

Note: Not all of the listed standard will be attempted, selections will be made to suit the practical projects undertaken.
