What will the apprentice be doing?

You will help a team including engineers and technicians who work with architects to model, draw and assist in designing building structures using a variety of construction materials and designing complex underground drainage and utilities networks that support the building. This is design work that really matters.

You will work on a wide variety of buildings, from brand new sports stadia, universities, to offices and industrial premises. You could also get involved in the computer modelling and drawing of external parts of buildings, such as car-parks and access roads.

You will also have the advantage of Building Information Modelling (BIM) technology, which enables us to design buildings collaboratively using computer models.  

Across all teams, you will support a variety of different work, including production of engineering drawings and sketches, including 3D or 2D computer drawings; production of Building Information Models (BIM) (depending on the specifics of the role); undertaking virtual design reviews; preparation of simple engineering calculations and contributing to solutions for design challenges. 

What training will the apprentice take and what qualification will the apprentice get at the end?

As part of your apprenticeship, you'll study towards the Level 3 Building Services Engineering Technician apprenticeship standard:

  • Pearson BTEC Level 3 National Diploma in Building Services Engineering

As an apprentice, you will study with a training provider, such as a college, and combine this experience with real responsibilities in the workplace.

Your study pattern could be day or block release, or via distance learning, depending on the course that you enrol on. A dedicated mentor will guide you through your personal and professional development.

Level 3 Advanced Apprenticeships have a typical duration of three years, during which you will attain both a professional and academic qualification to further your career.

What is the expected career progression after this apprenticeship?

When joining us as one of our apprentices, you’ll enjoy the opportunity to study for a paid, professionally recognised qualification in a discipline that will help you further your career.

Throughout your apprenticeship, you’ll have access to our online network. You’ll also take internal courses. These cover technical aspects of the business, such as software, but also vital ‘soft’ skills such as report writing and working effectively.
