Technical Qualification Structure
The technical qualification is made up of two components, both of which need to be successfully achieved to attain the T-Level Technical Qualification in Onsite Construction.
The Core Component
The core content is designed to offer sufficient breadth of knowledge and skills for the learner to apply in a variety of contexts related to the industry and those occupational specialisms linked to this T-Level. The core content is the building blocks of knowledge and skills that will give a learner a broad understanding of the industry and job roles. At the same time, it will develop the core skills they will need to apply when working within the industry.
Occupational specialisms develop the knowledge, skills and behaviours necessary to achieve threshold competence in an occupation. Threshold competence is defined as when a learner's attainment against the knowledge, skills and behaviours is of a standard for them to enter the occupation and industry. They must also demonstrate the ability to achieve occupational competence over time with the correct support and training.

- Onsite Construction component

After Your Course
This technical qualification focuses on developing the knowledge and skills needed for working in the onsite industry, which will prepare learners to enter the industry through employment or as an apprentice. Furthermore, completing this qualification allows learners to progress to higher education courses and training. This qualification will suit learners who still need to be employed or looking to enter the industry post-mainstream education. The qualification structure is designed to give learners a breadth of knowledge and understanding across the onsite industry but also to equip them with the necessary occupational and core skills to enter the industry. This qualification is designed to support fair access and enables learners to manage and improve their performance.
