Constructing the Built Environment Level 1 / 2 Award
Constructing the Built Environment Level 1 / 2 Award (QAN - 601/0543/4) is designed to support learners in developing an awareness of certain key considerations. It mainly supports learners in schools and colleges who want to learn about the construction industry from the build perspective. It provides learners with a broad introduction to the different trades involved in the sector and the types of career opportunities available.
The award is made up of three units, each having an applied purpose which acts as a focus encouraging learners to consider how the use and application of their knowledge, understanding and skills impacts on individuals, employers society and environment.
