Civil Engineering Degree Apprentice
Over five years, you’ll study for a Civil Engineering Site Management degree whilst working on Hinkley Point C or Sizewell C power stations in roles such as construction, safety, environment and surveillance to name a few.
Whilst on the scheme, you’ll follow the Civil Engineering Site Management Apprentice Standard, which is a formal degree apprenticeship.
The majority of your tuition will fall within four, two-week residential periods, delivered by the University of Exeter. You’ll also study elements of the degree during time at work. The residential periods will be structured around your modules and will include lectures, seminars and workshops. You’ll have one to one support from an academic mentor and during these periods will also get time to socialise with your peers.
During your time on the apprenticeship, you’ll take on tasks such as:
- Assisting design teams with civil engineering solutions
- Supervision of specialist contractors
- Contributing to the control of health and safety on the project
- Recording, control and reporting of progress on the project
- Contributing to the minimisation of the environmental impact of the project
- Controlling the quality of works on the project
As you progress through your apprenticeship you will gain more knowledge and experience. With this, you’ll be expected to:
- Ensure that safe systems of work are in place on site and that all staff adhere to them
- Translate design information to construction teams so they can construct the project effectively and efficiently
- Manage the productivity on the site so that the project is completed on time
- Ensure that the project is completed to the specification and quality needed by the client
- Manage the activity on site in a way that adheres to cost and contract constraints
- Ensure that the site has minimal negative impact on the environment and community
- Manage interfaces between stakeholders associated with the project
