Level 3 Construction

Recommended Prior Learning

Students should have successfully completed Level 1 Construction, or have approval from the Teacher in Charge.

Construction is part of Te Tai Tokerau Trades Academy. The resources for the unit standards in these courses are from the BCITO BConstructive programmes for schools. BConstructive are hands on programmes that are innovative, practical and multi-disciplinary programmes for students, providing them with the skills and knowledge to springboard into any career in the construction industry. The BConstructive programmes are primarily workshop based. Rather than focusing on any one trade the programmes build skills and an understanding of all trades in the construction industry. Students who participate in the BConstructive programme can go on to consider apprenticeships in a variety of trades such as: building, construction, plumbing, drain laying, roofing, gas-fitting, painting and decorating, infrastructure, flooring and joinery. 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.
