Our Construction Management and Quantity Surveying courses are great pathways to a successful career in Construction.
A recent article in the Chartered Institute of Builders‘ (CIOB) ‘Construction Manager’ magazine, discussed the Construction Industry Training Board‘s (CITB) forecast, predicting a shortage of skilled Construction professionals over the coming five years (click here for the full article).
The CITB predicts that more than 150,000 UK construction jobs will be created up to 2023 and that the strongest job growth will be in a range of professional and managerial roles such as Construction Management.
Construction Managers- sometimes known as site managers or site agents- supervise and direct operations on a construction project to make sure it is completed safely, on time and within budget. As a guideline figure, Construction Managers can start out earning around £25,000 per year.
A Quantity Surveyor manages costs relating to building and civil engineering projects, from the initial calculations to the final figures and they seek to minimise project costs and enhance value for money, while still ensuring required standards and quality. As a guideline, Quanity Surveyors can start out earning between £20,000-£30,000 per year.

We’re here to support you every step of the way while you’re studying at the College. Antony Wanjiku joined South Lanarkshire College as a mature student after working in the industry to gain experience. Antony told us:
“Whilst I had all this experience I had no formal recognised qualifications which really limited my career progression. The lecturers encouraged me and recognised how hard I was working to acquire more skills and knowledge through my studies, which are applicable in my field of work but also in my day-to-day endeavours.”
