Are you a practical type of person? Prefer doing a practical, hands on task more than sitting at a desk all day? If so, our Construction course may be the course for you. The construction courses are designed around developing your practical skills and tasks; placing an emphasis on you demonstrating what you can do rather than what you know in theory. The qualifications provides you with the opportunity to acquire and develop generic, transferable and sector-specific skills in order to complete tasks and demonstrate a level of achievement that enables you to progress further within the industry.

What our students say

Last year I did a rap/grime set as part of a label launch at The Talking Heads which was a mind-blowing and memorable experience. At Totton College the course is fluid so you can really tailor your learning; I’ve been able to combine performance with music tech.
