The Higher Level Apprenticeship in Digital Construction Management [accredited by the Open University] provides students with the skills and knowledge needed to succeed in the construction industry, which has undergone a digital revolution, with the development of 'Building Information Management' in the whole life cycle of the building and construction process. This 3-year Higher Level Apprenticeship is designed to equip apprentices with the ability to understand, utilise and develop the skills needed whilst working in the construction industry. It builds transferable skills in communication, teamwork, and the ability to self-reflect.

Digital construction management is addressing the construction industry’s low productivity. Using Building Information Modelling (BIM) tools, this endeavours to integrate procedures throughout the whole life cycle of a construction project. Adopting digital technology means implementing a data-driven approach which creates a more effective construction process. The most exciting element of Digital Construction Management is using new technology to capture construction progress and its context. Photogrammetry application is an example of flying a drone over the site, taking photos from the site, and automatically creating 3D models that everyone in the construction can see and share as opposed to traditional, cumbersome surveying methods.

This course is designed to bridge this skills deficit, providing a qualification that covers both the traditional knowledge and skills required and the enhanced digital skills needed to function effectively within the industry.
