Course summary


Developed in consultation with employers by Pearson Edexcel, this course is suited for those pursuing a career in Construction & the Built Environment.

Our Higher National Certificate course offers a good balance of academic theory and practical industry knowledge which is firmly aligned to your job requirements from day one. Through high-quality lectures, case study research and employer-based projects you will gain a unique blend of general skills along with specific industry knowledge in sustainable construction management. Content on the course centres around current UK and International Building Projects.

Course Structure

This course places a strong emphasis on analysis and evaluation of subject-specialist concepts and procedures. By the end of the programme you will have gained significant sector skills knowledge and competence to undertake middle to senior management responsibilities.

Assessment & Feedback

The course is assessed through coursework. You will complete assignments that focus on the practical application of the assessment criteria, providing a realistic scenario for you to adopt, making maximum use of work-related practical experience and reflecting typical practice in the construction and built environment. The HNC is graded pass, merit or distinction.

Recognition of Prior Learning (RPL) is a method of assessment (leading to the award of credit) that considers whether you can demonstrate that you can meet the assessment requirements for a unit through knowledge, understanding or skills you already possess and so do not need to develop through a course of learning. This can be discussed at the start of the course.
