Apprenticeship Programme

Our Apprenticeship programmes are an excellent pathway for school and college leavers as well as experienced trades to develop their skills and knowledge within a professional field. We offer degree-level apprenticeships (level 6) for college leavers which include support with professional development, on the job experience, behavioural and technical development on a structured pathway. The programme is industry recognised and designed to provide you with the experience to support you towards becoming a surveyor, building services manager or site manager.

Our Level 4 technical apprenticeship offers school leavers and experienced trades professionals to develop the skills and experience towards becoming a site supervisor, building services supervisor or surveying supervisor. This industry recognised programme offers structured development and experience as well as support in achieving a HNC in the relevant pathway.

We are keen to hear from school-leavers who have a real passion in the built environment and want to develop their skills and competence towards becoming an electrical or mechanical engineering apprentice. This level 3 pathway is the first step to learning the trade and offers great potential in building a professional career within our Engineering Services business.

Please note, if you are a degree holder, you are not eligible to apply for our apprentice programme. You may be able to apply for our Graduate or Undergraduate programmes.
