Course Code: GM3H 46
SQA Level: 3
SCQF Level: 6
Mode of Study: Part time/in the workplace
Length of Study: Dependent on employment demands
Entry Requirements: Please see entry requirements page

Overview

With the increasing complexity of construction and civil engineering projects, there is a demand for designers to be able to consult with other technical experts, investigate technical literature, develop and deliver design solutions that will meet the client’s briefs and comply with Construction (Design and Management) Regulations 2015 (CDM 2015).

To achieve this qualification, candidates will have to demonstrate that they have the suitable level of technical competence to investigate factors that influence design, develop design in consultation with others and deliver robust design solutions in a clear manner.

Candidates will be assessed to the industry recognised National Occupational Standards (NOS) that have been developed by the Sector Skills Council (SSC).
