The country's metropolitan cities are safe and packed with entertainment.

What's new

What's new

COVID-19

Everthought College of Construction is responding to the pandemic and working hard to protect the safety of its students. Despite closing the campus to reduce risk of exposure to the virus, ECOC has continued studies for students. Before the pandemic, it had already been preparing different methods for delivering its courses, and improving the theoretical education on different platforms.

Students are, for the time being, focusing on the theoretical side of their learning and will continue with practical elements when it is safer to do so. Learning is therefore not as disrupted, but rather just organised in a slightly different order. The college's aim is for students' education to have as little impact as possible during this time. It is also supporting students who are experiencing financial hardship.

The college posts updates on the website and is working to keeping everyone informed.

Recent update

Everthought College of Construction has now been updated to an Assessment Level 1 provider - to aid with student visa file credibility.

Teaching quality

Teaching quality

Everthought College of Construction has been delivering courses and qualifications for more than ten years and over 6,500 individuals have graduated from the college. Instruction at the specialist training college is centred around student success.

Teachers are highly experienced in their trades, and work to keep their knowledge and skills up to date. Courses bring together the latest technologies and industry-leading craftsmanship. Learning occurs within environments that emulate real-life situations, so students gain the practical experience needed for the next steps of their careers.

Students regularly give the college excellent feedback, resulting in it receiving a net promoter score (NPS) of 61.7. This is above Harvard Business School's score.

There are four trade course intakes and up to eight construction supervision and management course intakes each year. This means there are different courses beginning every six weeks. Timetables are flexible with one week on one week off structures, so students can apply their learned skills in the workplace every other week.
