West London IoT Continuing Professional Development (CPD) Courses 

West London IoT Continuing Professional Development (CPD) HN Flex courses are delivered by lead partner HCUC (Harrow College & Uxbridge College). Therefore, all courses link to the Harrow College or Uxbridge College website. This is where you will find the course handbook and the application form. 

What is HN Flex?  

HN Flex provides students with the ability to study bite-sized knowledge, skills and behaviour units from Higher National Qualifications at Level 4 and 5. For students looking to upskill in their current role, reskill in a new area or seeking Continued Professional Development (CPD), HN Flex provides progression opportunities through learning relevant industry skills. 

Why consider HN Flex? 

A recent survey carried out by the West London Institute of Technology (WLIoT) in conjunction with the West London Alliance, London Economic Recovery Board, as well as Pearson (Awarding Body for higher level BTEC programmes) itself, has shown that there is a significant skills shortage in this sector, especially in construction practice and management. 
Furthermore, employers are often unable to meet the demands of their staff to attend full HNC programmes in one go, but welcome these bite-size part-time units to overcome this issue, making staff training more affordable with little or no effect on their work practices. 
These HN Flex units not only give staff recognition and improve their work efficiencies, but they can also be used for CPD and to meet training requirements identified through yearly staff appraisals. It has been proven over the years that relevant timely training has the overall benefits of maintaining a motivated, skilled workforce, up to date work practices, increased efficiencies and staff retention. 

Benefits of HN Flex to Students? 


HN Flex Unit 4: Construction Practice and Management (BTEC Level 4) 

Part-Time Programme 
Location: West London Institute of Technology, based at Uxbridge College  
Duration: 9 weeks  
When: Tuesday, Thursday 18:00 to 20:30 
Who is the course for? 
Candidates who are looking to, or are already, working in a more senior/management role within a company.  
As this is a level 4 unit of a HNC programme, it is particularly desirable for candidates who are not currently in a position to study a full HNC, due to work, financial or personal commitments, but are able to study these units as bite-sized chunks, part time. The units can then count towards a full HNC in Construction and the Built Environment (8 units) if they decide to continue with their studies. 
Entry Requirements  
Candidates should ideally have completed a Level 3 qualification or above in construction or the built environment, either academic or trade based. It is also suitable for candidates who have been to University or those with no formal qualifications, but a good level of English and experience of working in the sector. 
Course Details  
The aim of this unit is to develop and provide students with a holistic understanding of construction practice and management processes. In addition, students will explore Building Information Modelling and how it fits into construction processes/sequences ranging from domestic to large-scale and design and build projects. The knowledge from this unit will provide students with an understanding of modern construction and management; the skills, management of people and projects, and how Health & Safety have changed the perception of the construction industry.
