Courses

We provide two types of pathways to students seeking a career in the built environment. For students aiming to enter the construction industry as junior professionals, CSCT provides Edexcel international recognized and accredited BTEC Higher National Diplomas. These diplomas are vocational qualifications aimed at students wanting a fast track pathway in to the industry or students seeking to upgrade their professional experience or those seeking entry to the university system. The entry requirement is at minimum 2 A/L passes and/ or relevant industry experience. The following HND’s are delivered at CSCT.
