Construction qualifications

Construction as a sector touches all aspects of society from private and social housing, commercial and industrial buildings, road building as well as public buildings such as schools and hospitals.

The sector is one of the most important areas affecting the national economy and is made up of “traditional” occupations such as plastering, bricklaying and joinery but is also at the fore front of new exciting cutting-edge technologies which support the green agenda.

GQA has a wide range of industry relevant qualifications in the Construction sector underpinning its journey to achieve Quality through Qualifications.
