If you are working in the built environment and hold a degree unrelated to construction, you may be able to gain the knowledge you need for construction management by taking the Chartered Institute of Building (CIOB) Graduate Diploma Programme.
You may also be able to complete relevant NVQs, including:
Contact CIOB, the National House Building Council and the Association of Building Engineers for more details about their training programmes
The CIOB also has information on a range of short course covering all aspects of construction management, including project management, contracts, construction law and regulations
Expected skills and knowledge:
Construction managers are normally employed by building companies and specialist subcontractors. Opportunities may also exist with central and local government departments, utility companies and larger companies like major retailers.
With experience, you could progress into contract management or consultancy. With further training, you could also move into teaching or support services, such as health and safety inspection
