Our apprenticeship scheme is designed to attract new talent into the industry. Apprentices are employed in many different fields including construction management, procurement, human resources and business administration.
Construction apprentices start with a Level-4 apprenticeship in Construction Management which takes approximately two years to complete. They are then encouraged to progress to a Level-6 degree apprenticeship. Quantity Surveying apprentices undertake a Level-6 degree apprenticeship, taking approximately five years to complete.
The apprenticeship includes a rotation of different parts of the business, to offer an understanding of the various professions and how they link with their role. The work placements are combined with off the job training delivered by an apprenticeship provider.
