KS5 Curriculum Intent
City and Guilds 6219 Level 1 Construction Skills
Our intention is to provide our pupils with a foundation of knowledge and skills in the construction industry, increasing their awareness of a range of trades, supporting their onward journey to higher education and ultimately into the job market. We aim to focus this qualification around a range of trades that are related to the construction industry, giving our pupils a better chance of employment if they choose to enter this job area. We intend to keep the qualification fluid by observing current trends in the construction job market and choosing content to support current needs where this data is available.
This qualification will be delivered in house, using the industry standard facilities that we have on site. Pupils will be supported in working to their own strengths throughout a range of units and they will be assessed using a range of assessment methods to ensure that they have the best possible chance to succeed. Pupils will be given opportunities to develop individual skills and personal confidence with using the various tools and techniques of the trades featured within the units of study. Alongside this, pupils will learn to appreciate the need for effective health and safety procedures.
Pupils will have an improved knowledge of a range of construction jobs that are available within the current local job markets and have an increased knowledge of the skills required to fulfil those roles successfully. Pupils will have gained a level 1 qualification at a level appropriate to them which they can carry forward into the next part of their journey towards successful employment.
