Ian Puttock, FdSc Construction, graduated 2016

"The course has given me an excellent grounding for re-entering my career at a higher level and I would recommend it to anyone who wants to work in a managerial role on-site. The Psychology behind People Management, Site Management, and Health and Safety modules were especially interesting and I use them extensively in my current position. I now work as an Assistant Site Manager for Cadman and I worked on the College’s new STEM Centre."
