In my role I get to work on various projects and I am just working on a new development which is currently at the planning stage, this is my first project where I will be involved from the beginning to completion.
Before deciding which qualification to do I researched various options including full-time and part-time higher education courses and apprenticeships.

It provides me with the opportunity to develop my knowledge within the construction industry while gaining valuable experience in the work place.
