Short Courses

Upskill, reskill, and develop

NMITE's unique approach to learning, now available through our range of Short Courses. 

Short Courses designed to upskill and support your workforce to meet the engineering demands of the 21st century

In response to the current skills crisis in the construction sector which requires an additional 350,000 FTE workers over the next decade to deliver the volume of work needed to reach net zero by 2050, NMITE has developed a series of short courses. Designed in response to the industry derived Timber Technology, Engineering and Design (TED) Competency framework requirements these short courses will upskill and reskill the built environment professionals of the future to specifically address the climate emergency.  

Our Timber TED courses are delivered by NMITE in partnership with Timber Development UK and Edinburgh Napier University.  

  • Small intakes, up to 20, twice a year for each Timber TED course

  • Currently there are no UK equivalent CPD courses that directly address timber in construction on this scale of detail with associated learning techniques capable of addressing the market need

  • Industry is fully supportive of the proposal including Timber Development UK who will endorse and support (including a limited number of funded places)

  • Our TED courses are part of a series that will prepare professionals to tackle the climate crisis emergency by producing net zero buildings utilising sustainable biogenic materials like timber

  • Like all NMITE courses, our TED courses are based on work-place challenges and learning by doing 

  • The courses encourage professional and genuinely creative solutions

  • This is an NMITE course delivered in partnership with Timber Development UK and Edinburgh Napier University  

  • Blended online learning and campus workshops

Timber Technology Engineering Design 1 (TED 1) starts 16th January 2023 for 12 weeks.

  • Timber TED 1 uses an online and in-person (three short (three days) residential weeks in Hereford) blended learning approach, combined with NMITE’s unique learn-by-doing ethos and work-based challenges to form the basis and building blocks of knowledge, and to effect a transformational change that extends beyond the course to industry application. 
  • To ensure your application to Timber TED 1 can be accepted we encourage you to apply before December 16th 2022, after this date we can’t guarantee you a place. For further information please contact us at CATT@nmite.ac.uk

Timber Technology Engineering Design 2 (TED 2) starts 2nd of May 2023 for 12 weeks. 

  • Timber Technology Engineering Design 2 uses an online/blended learning approach, combined with NMITE’s unique learn-by-doing ethos and work-based challenges to form the basis and building blocks of knowledge, and to affect a transformative change that extends beyond the course to industry application.
  • This course is for those who have already completed the NMITE Timber TED 1 course, and would like to extend their knowledge even further. Just like TED 1, this course will allow you to advance in your career in the built environment industry while continuing to work full time in the job you already have.
