The BSc in Construction Site Management has been developed in response to the industry’s critical need for suitably qualified and experienced Site Managers. Participants typically include those who have progressed to a supervisory/management role from a trades background and/or with substantial site experience. A full Level 7 qualification, it is delivered over 12 months via an innovative blended delivery approach combining classroom and online learning. This has proven to be attractive to both learners and their employers, facilitating student flexibility and ensuring that companies retain and upskill staff while remaining in the workplace. The course places a strong emphasis upon recognising and incorporating the learner’s experiences into the learning process moving away from teaching to learning that embraces reflection, discussion and guided development. The curriculum focuses upon the development of both constructionspecific competencies and broader personal and professional skills. Through this educational process, graduates of the course have grown in confidence and are now assured in their role as Construction Management professionals.

Cost

The employed will pay €510 (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
