How to Become a Construction Manager by Upskilling

Construction project managers are in demand, making this one of the best careers to upskill for better career prospects. According to research by the Project Management Institute, the UK construction industry will see substantial job growth, with a clear upward trajectory predicted until at least 2027. The Prospects.ac.uk website also sheds light on the current skills shortage figures, so there’s no better time for upskilling if you’re a construction professional.

 

Upskilling with a master’s degree

If you want to know how to become a construction manager with your existing skills, it’s important to choose the right course, where tutors can support and nurture your talent. The MSc Construction Project Management course at the University of Bolton is designed for graduates with an honours degree in an appropriate construction discipline, as well as graduates who already have some experience working in the industry.

 

Developing your knowledge in sustainability

For construction professionals interested in taking on higher levels of responsibility at work, it’s important to brush up on your understanding of sustainability concepts and processes. Based on the Chartered Institute of Building (CIOB) guidelines for construction project management, we teach students about the entire project lifecycle. This means building your knowledge from ‘inception to recycling’, with sustainable practices being a core element of our programme.


Working towards chartered membership

At the University of Bolton, we are accredited by the Chartered Institute of Building (CIOB). This means that upon completion of your course, with appropriate experience, you may then go on to apply for full corporate membership. This allows you to use the official chartered letters (MCIOB) after your name, boosting your employability and earning potential.
