A NEW foundation degree in construction site management has been unveiled by Anglia Ruskin University in association with the National Construction College Higher Skills@Work campaign.

The fast-track, work-based degree is open to experienced construction sector employees looking to become construction site managers, or those already in the job seeking formal recognition of their skills.

The two-year course has been designed to minimise time away from work, with block-release sessions being conducted at the Anglia Ruskin campus in Chelmsford and the National Construction College at Bircham Newton, Norfolk. After completion, graduates will have the chance to progress to a full honours degree.

Andy Walder, director of the National Construction College, said: "This new course will offer people the chance to both learn new skills and have the talents that they already possess formally recognised.

"It is important that everyone in the construction industry, including managers, receive first class training and together with Anglia Ruskin University, we are proud to be able to provide this.
