Chester building partners go the distance.
A BUILDING school and the University of Chester have teamed up to provide a new professional qualification in construction.
Wally Vick, principal of Chester-based Premier School of Building (PSB), has developed the courses which lead to professional certificates in higher education.
Courses cover building technology, architectural technology and an introduction to quantity surveying. Students are taught using supported online distance learning through the Centre for Work Related Studies at the university.
Lecturer Dr Jon Talbot said: “The Chester Centre for Work Related Studies specialises in opportunities for busy practitioners in work, who want relevant learning and impact in their workplace.
“We are delighted to be able to add PSB to our ever-growing network of training providers. It is great that we can give support a local business and provide university accreditation for the company’s learning provision.
“As a result of the accreditation, each certificate is recognised internationally as a qualification in its own right and can be integrated into other university programmes as accredited prior learning, should a student wish to take theirs to foundation or degree level.”
