What will you learn?

Apprentices will develop a range of knowledge, skills and behaviors required to become a successful Building Services Engineering Technician. These include the knowledge and skills to control health and safety, support with sustainability, implement construction technology, plan, organise and manage projects, monitor quality and monitor costs.

How is it delivered and assessed?

Apprentices will attend college on a day release basis where knowledge will be developed via taught sessions, online learning and self-study. The HNC units to be delivered are:

  • Construction technology
  • Science and materials
  • Construction practice and management
  • Principles of heating services design and installation
  • Individual project
  • Principles of alternate energy
  • Mathematics for construction
  • Principles of ventilation and air conditioning design and installation

A portfolio of evidence will be developed by the apprentice with the support of the Assessor. This portfolio will confirm the knowledge which has been developed, the skills which are regularly applied in the workplace and the behaviors demonstrated to be a successful Building Services Engineering Technician.

Apprentices are required to undertake end point assessment. This will be a set project brief, a written short report, a presentation and a structured interview to demonstrate the knowledge, skills and behaviors developed over the programme.

Entry Requirements

  • A previous Level 3 construction-based apprenticeship. For example – Technical and Professional Advanced Level Apprenticeship or Advanced Level Heating and Ventilation Framework.
  • English and maths at Level 2
  • Apprentices must be in suitable employment and have the opportunity to develop the required knowledge, skills and behaviors aligned to this apprenticeship standard. Assessments will be carried out with employers to determine suitability
