Constructing the Built Environment Level 1 / 2 Award
This qualification is available for centres in both Wales and England, however it no longer carries performance points in England. If you are a centre in England looking to deliver this qualification with performance points, please visit the Eduqas website for Level 1/2 Constructing the Built Environment. This new qualification has been specifically designed to carry performance points in England.
Constructing the Built Environment Level 1 / 2 Award (QAN - 601/0543/4) is designed to support learners in developing an awareness of certain key considerations.
