Teaching and assessment methods include theory-based sessions, which are classroom taught. These sessions are tested through paper-based tests.

Practical-based sessions are delivered in our trades workshop, which is based at City Campus in Sunderland. These sessions are tested through practical assessment.

Assessments both in the classroom and in the workshop are spaced throughout the academic year.

Math's and English are important life skills that will help you to achieve your best in your studies and progress to further studying or employment.

Throughout the course, Math's and English will be embedded into lessons where applicable.

If you have not yet achieved GCSE qualifications in Math's and English at grade 4, then we will support you to work towards these as a requirement of your course.

You will study up to a possible 19 hours per week in college and will also be expected to learn in your own time to enhance your learning experience. You will be given a timetable at enrolment.

The aim of the Level 1 certificate is to help you choose which trade area you enjoy most and want further develop your skills and knowledge in.

This will then allow you to progress onto a full Level 1 diploma in a specific trade area, or progress to our Level 2 in Property Maintenance Operations course.

There are a number of units/skills that will be covered throughout the academic year, such as:

- Plastering
- Bricklaying
