Since the original launch of the standards for 14 - 19 education the committee has released a new version including BIM (Building Information Modelling). The standards provide a sound basis for the progression to Apprenticeships, Further, Higher and Professional education, training and employment. 

The full PDF set of Standards for 14 - 19 Education is available on the CIOB website (Chartered Institute of Building, under the Qualifications tab). 

Programmes based on the standards should provide opportunities to explore the built environment at different levels.

The standards have the support of employers and provide a benchmark for future development of qualifications. They form the basis for a motivating learning experience through a blend of general education and applied learning.

The standards cover the built environment in a holistic way and include many aspects of the industry that people don’t realise exist as job roles around consideration of wellbeing including social, economic and community issues.
