T-Level Onsite Construction

Our Facilities

Our brand-new T Level Construction building is an on-site development which houses an impressive and extensive construction area that accommodates all the Construction Department’s multiple discipline requirements. The new building is multi-functional: brickwork and joinery/carpentry students use the building to construct the shell of a domestic property and electrical and plumbing students practise their skills by the installation of gas pipework, water systems and electrical wiring.

Working in this way allows students to gain real-time working knowledge in their area of expertise, and an appreciation of what other skills go into a house build. In addition to the remarkable working area, the building also accommodates a specialised classroom facility, changing and shower area and an office for teaching staff to work.


Students are expected to wear a green T Level branded polo shirt, grey fleece and black workwear trousers as well as their distinctive purple T Level lanyard.
