Get industry-ready for a great career in sustainable construction

University College Birmingham is proud to introduce our new range of college courses centred around sustainable construction. These courses will be heavily practical and taught in our new purpose-built, state-of-the-art facilities which closely replicate what you would find in the workplace.

We will be honing in on current environmental agendas – such as COP26 targets and the Future Homes Standard – and making sure you leave college with the skills, knowledge and relevant work experience to play a vital part in shaping the future of the construction sector after your studies. We also have a whole range of engineering college courses, and once you've finished, you can go onto higher education qualifications in construction or engineering with us! 

Sustainable Construction Centre


Formerly a print works, the art deco James Cond building will be home to our new Sustainable Construction Centre, where you will learn your trade!

With Britain expected to need more than 200,000 new construction workers by 2025, now is the perfect time to start building the essential skills and knowledge for entering the construction industry and driving its sustainable future.

We are launching these construction courses in September 2023! 

This launch includes Level 1, 2 and 3 courses and T-level qualifications – covering everything from brickwork, carpentry and joinery to electrical installation and plumbing, as well as construction and the built environment and design, surveying and planning.
