Construction and Building Service Engineering

From September 2021, in collaboration with Excellence Achievement and Learning (EAL), we will be offering the T Level technical qualifications (TQs) in Building Services Engineering and On-Site Construction. These will only be available in England.

8710 T Level Technical Qualification in Building Services Engineering for Construction >

8711 T Level Technical Qualification in Onsite Construction >

David Phillips Managing Director City & Guilds and ILM said: “We are delighted that our new Level 3 Technical Qualifications, that will sit within the Construction T Level pathways for On-site and Building Service Engineering, have now been approved for delivery in 2021 by the Institute for Apprenticeships and Technical Education and accredited by Ofqual. This is the culmination of many months of hard work in partnership with EAL, who we continue to successfully collaborate with in the Building Services and Engineering sector, as well as thanks to the ongoing support of the Institute, DfE and OfQual.  

“We are excited for September 2021 when the first cohort of learners will be welcomed onto the courses when we will see these market leading qualifications provide young people with the skills and experience they need to forge a path into a rewarding career. In addition, these qualifications will better equip young people to fill the many construction jobs that are expected to be created in the UK over the coming year.”

We have put together a list of activities to help you prepare ahead for the TQs first teaching in September 2021. Please refer to the timeline of activities to ensure that you have everything in place and are ready to hit the ground running.
