Construction Skills for Highway Maintenance (L1)

Course Summary

Created in collaboration with Ringway, Surrey’s leading highway maintenance contractor, and their major supply chain partner Eurovia Surfacing, this one year Level 1 course is designed to provide a pathway to the Ringway Highways Maintenance/Groundworks Apprenticeship or a similar apprenticeship with Eurovia or other supply chain partner. With a growing demand for skilled workers in this field, the course develops skills learned on the Entry 3 programmes, in Construction, Employability and Digital, with a focus on application to highway maintenance. Certificated by the Gateway examining body, the Building and Construction specification is delivered with input from Ringway and Eurovia staff with live briefs/industry projects, masterclasses and enrichment activities.

You must be at least 17 years old. Ringway recognises that skilled workers do not always come with advanced levels of English and maths. However, GCSE Grade 2/Entry Level 3 qualifications in English and maths and experience and qualifications in construction are desirable. You must have the ability to work hard and take direction. Students have a six-week induction period to demonstrate their aptitude for the course.

You can apply online below or by telephoning our Admissions Department on 0208 394 3038. You will then receive an email inviting you in for an interview. The interview consists of an initial assessment before having a meeting with a member of the teaching team, where suitability and commitment will be assessed.

Students with developing literacy and numeracy skills are welcomed as are students with additional needs (EHCP students subject to Local Authority Consultation).

Successful students can progress to a Ringway apprenticeship in Highways Maintenance/Groundworks, or a Eurovia apprenticeship Highways Maintenance or Surfacing. Other apprenticeship opportunities may be available through Ringway’s supply chain partners. Direct employment with Ringway or a supply chain partner may also be an option. Alternatively, students can progress to a Level 1 Programme at Nescot, subject to requisite English and maths qualifications.
