Course Main Info (Course introduction text for top banner The qualification that prospective students will gain throughout this course will be the National 5 in Construction Crafts. While this is a practical, trade based qualification we are hoping to engage and enthuse students not only in trade subjects but also showcase the professional careers that are available in the industry which may otherwise be unknown.

This course is specifically targeted towards females to further help close the gender gap in other areas and meet the ever growing demand for females in the wider construction sector.

This course is not only for females who might like to access the construction industry through the traditional trade routes but also for those who would like to learn more about and access the professional careers that exist.

It aims to show just how popular these careers can be with females and highlight some of the incredible successes that females continue to have in the sector.
