School of setting out is the construction school of Finchley college. We offer weekend and evening part time courses in construction engineering and management with City & Guild certificates.

We offer you an excellent training specially designed to produce high quality engineers and managers within a few weeks.

Our aim is to train highly competent and sought after engineers, able to work on their own with no supervision, able to use a variety of Total stations and levelling equipment, read and understand construction drawings and set out elements on sites.

We offer two courses in construction surveying. A setting out and site surveying procedures course suitable for those who would like to work as an assistant or junior engineer on construction sites and an advanced level site engineering course suitable for those who would like to start work straight away as a senior engineer.
