As part of Meldrum’s continued commitment to training and development, we are looking for a bright, enthusiastic individual to award a bursary to complete an HNC Advanced Home Construction qualification.

Working in association with The Auckland Project we are hoping to recruit this person from the Bishop Auckland area as part of the wider regeneration opportunities in Bishop Auckland. The HNC Advanced Home Construction course will be delivered via a 2 year part time course, studying part time at Teesside University combined with working with our design department. Upon successful completion of the course, the applicant will join the Meldrum Design Team full time, working alongside our current Architects and Design Technologists at our Head Office in Dunston, Gateshead.

The Course

George Clarke, architect and presenter of Channel 4’s Amazing Spaces and Restoration Man, has contributed to the design of the programmes and specialist facilities at Teesside University, providing you with the opportunity to develop your skills in designing, fabricating and constructing creative and innovative new homes.

This course guides you through a detailed exploration of construction methods, such as using off-site manufacture and prefabrication, and alternative building materials, and the location of building projects. You have an opportunity to develop concept models and construct scale models of your designs in a specially designed facility at Teesside University’s main campus. George Clarke’s social enterprise, the Ministry of Building, Innovation and Education (MOBIE), is kick-starting a fundamental change to the building industry and our courses have been designed to adhere closely to the modular building concept and advanced home construction principles of MOBIE.

Entry Requirements: Applicants must hold a minimum of Mathematics Level 3 (A-Level / Access Course / BTEC).
