Ever looked up at the buildings around you and thought, wow that’s pretty impressive? Well these buildings are an immense collaboration between the designers or architects, surveyors and the builders who physically put a structure together.
The Construction Sector
Did you know that people trained in architecture and surveying are some of the most sought after in the Liverpool City Region and these areas have recently been identified as having a skills shortage locally? That means there’s never been a better time to train in Construction, Surveying and Architecture as there are so many job opportunities to be grasped.
We as a college are proud to offer this course and focused on delivering an education that will shape the future of our local region and the built environment sector. You could contribute to the improvement of not only building technologies but also people’s lives as a whole.

Grace Webb, Construction, Surveying and Architecture Level 3 Extended Diploma
I want to be an architect in the future so this course was perfect for me. I think the BTEC is a much better route into this type of career as it focuses on the industry much more and allows you to gain practical skills as well as knowledge. I have particularly enjoyed the opportunities we have had to go out to building sites to gain experience of what it is like out in the industry. I chose Southport College as it was the best college I visited with the great facilities. I travel quite far to get here using my free travel pass, but it is definitely worth it. I am going to the University of Liverpool to study Architecture next year and I feel like my time here at Southport College has prepared me well. I know so much more about the whole construction industry now which will help massively in my future career as an architect.

I am going to Liverpool John Moores University to study a Masters in Civil Engineering (MEng) with the aspiration to pursue a career in Civil Engineering. This course is perfect for anyone trying to achieve a future in the construction industry.
