A One year part-time qualification for people looking to advance their careers in the construction industry.
The modern Construction Site Manager is recognized an integral part of the construction process and requires a range of management, technical and interpersonal skills to successfully deliver buildings and infrastructure.  In collaboration with local and national construction companies, this programme has been developed to meet a critical industry need for suitably qualified and experienced Construction Site Managers.  Participants will be the busy Tradesperson, Foreman or Site Manager, who want to upskill whilst maintaining their employment.  The programme will be delivered on a part-time basis using a blended learning approach, placing a strong emphasis upon work-based learning.


The programme will be delivered on a part-time basis, requiring students to attend WIT for intensive 2 day teaching sessions on 8 occasions throughout a full academic year (September to August).  Additional support will be provided in the form of online learning & assessment activities, facilitated via WIT’s learning management system Moodle


The employed will pay €500 (10%) of the total course fee with the Government paying the remaining 90% of the course fee on your behalf.  The fee will be payable only at the final stage of the application process when you have been offered a place.  The course is fully funded for unemployed people and people returning to formal employment - please see http://springboardcourses.ie/eligibility
