East Riding College and East Riding of Yorkshire Council have collaborated with local employers to develop a new civil engineering course.

The organisations identified a gap in local provision of higher-level HNC qualifications in construction and civil engineering.

They are now consulting with a broad range of employers to develop the provision to meet local needs.

Alex Sheldon, head of curriculum for construction said: “The course is held in the highest regard in industry and is a clear route to career advancement, away from hands-on work towards technical and managerial posts in areas such as structural design and civil engineering technology.

“There are lots of employees working in the industry with valuable experience but no formal higher level qualifications.”
