Building Control Surveyor at East Northamptonshire Council
When I took the position of a Trainee Building Control Surveyor, I didn’t have any kind of construction background and had not worked in building control previously. I enrolled on the NVQ Level 6 Diploma in Building Control a few months after starting, and found that the course was beneficial in giving me a good foundation to continue my future learning. The course allows you to really focus on different elements of the Building Regulations, which was really useful for someone like myself with limited knowledge. The tasks were varied, with a mix of PowerPoint presentations, letters, diaries and reports, which suited me well. David was brilliant in providing support throughout my course and his one to one meetings were great to discuss modules or tasks – he was always very helpful and eager to put any concerns I had to rest.
