About our apprenticeships, is this the right route for you?
Interested in one of our apprenticeships but not entirely sure what it entails? Well, as an apprentice you’ll be right in the thick of all the action. It’s a great route into the industry. You’ll get the chance to expand your knowledge by attending university one day a week, while constantly discovering new and exciting things and learning from our industry experts on the job. If you’re an individual that can work independently when appropriate and can demonstrate a positive approach to problem solving, then an apprenticeship is the perfect step for you.
However, it doesn’t stop there. The great thing about an apprenticeship is that you’ll be earning a salary straight away while learning, then eventually gaining a professional qualification. You’ll be given continued support as you develop your skills throughout the program and there is no cost for the training you receive.
So, what areas of our business do we offer degree level apprenticeships in?
We offer opportunities across the UK in quantity surveying and civil engineering.
Quantity surveyors manage and lead the cost aspects of construction project while ensuring that quality standards and client needs are always met. They will also ensure that disputes are minimised and settled amicably.
It’s a numbers game so if you’re a numbers person, then this is the apprenticeship for you!
You’ll be working alongside professionals with a wealth of industry experience which will enable you to constantly expand and broaden your knowledge. At the end of all your hard work, you’ll have a BSc (Hons) in Quantity Surveying and an Assessment of Professional Competence (APC).
As a civil engineering technician, you’ll be getting involved in the design, analysis, delivery and overall engineering of many important projects, providing long lasting solutions for everyone involved. Using programmes such as computer aided design and building information management, you’ll learn engineering principles and technics to help design and deliver infrastructure and buildings. If you have a broad skills base then this is certainly the scheme for you! At the end of all your hard work, you’ll have a BEng (Hons) in Civil Engineering to show for it all. You’ll also receive industry certificates in Site Safety Plus, Site Managers’ Safety Training Scheme and Site Environmental Awareness Training Scheme.
This apprenticeship will include the knowledge, skills and behaviours required to achieve Incorporated Engineer status with the Institution of Civil Engineers and lead to the designatory letters IEng MICE. The professional review process for IEng MICE is included in the final assessment process.
