What you will do in your working day

You'll be making a sustainable difference in people's lives, shaping cities, reimagining transport and transforming nuclear energy. And with the opportunity to work across Cities & Development, Nuclear & Power, Transportation, Water or Environment, you'll decide where you want your career to go.

Here’s what your role as an apprentice will involve:

  • Developing your skills in a wide range of exciting projects
  • Learning and using relevant design software
  • Being involved in client meetings and assisting in building key client relationships
  • You’ll get to understand and learn digital skills, to help us harness technology in new ways
  • Your mentors will support you as you study towards nationally recognised qualifications and accreditation
  • You’ll have dedicated time to spend at college or university to focus on your studies

The training you will be getting

  • Civil engineer (degree)
  • Functional Skills in English and maths if required

The programme provides a strong platform for pursuing and achieving a varied and interesting career in Civil Engineering, and incorporates recent developments in industry and education as well as the curriculum and teaching principles from research and academia.

Typically, you'll spend one day a week at university rather than your place of employment. There will also be learning activities and training at your workplace.

Three work-based learning modules, supported by your employer, will combine your own civil engineering interests and learning with those of your employer. The programme leads to the award of a BEng (Hons) Civil Engineering (Degree Apprenticeship) and a professional qualification through End-Point Assessment (EPA).

What to expect at the end of your apprenticeship

The programme is accredited by the Joint Board of Moderators (JBM), comprising the Institution of Civil Engineers, Institution of Structural Engineers, Institute of Highway Engineers and the Chartered Institution of Highways and Transportation on behalf of the Engineering Council for the purposes of fully meeting the academic requirement for registration as an Incorporated Engineer (IEng) and partially meeting the academic requirement for registration as a Chartered Engineer (CEng). Candidates must hold a masters or doctorate accredited as further learning for CEng to hold accredited qualifications for CEng registration.

Successful apprentices will gain a BSc or BEng civil engineering degree which is accredited by the Joint Board of Moderators.  (The Institution of Civil Engineers, the Institution of Structural Engineers, the Chartered Institution of Highways and Transportation, and the Institute of Highway Engineers form the Joint Board of Moderators which assesses and makes recommendations on the accreditation and approval of relevant educational programmes that it will accept as meeting the requirement to register as a professional engineer with the Engineering Council.)
