What you will do in your working day

Our apprenticeships are designed to give you an insight into a wide variety of areas of work and the chance to explore where your skills and interests lie.

Through a combination of on-the-job learning and practical skills development, you'll work on real projects from day one that offer scale and variety, collaborating with others and creating meaningful impact on the world around us. You'll work towards your professional qualification; whichever path you take, your future starts here.

Not only will you gain valuable 'on the job' experience and work towards professional qualifications but you'll also earn a meaningful salary from day one. We're proud to be paying Real Living Wage for our Level 6 Apprenticeships.

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

The training you will be getting

Level 6 University award: BEng (Hons) Civil Engineering - Teesside University.

The associated BEng (Hons) Civil Engineering included in the Degree Apprenticeship programme is accredited by the Joint Board of Moderators as:
  • Fully satisfying the educational base for an Incorporated Engineer (IEng)
  • Partially satisfying the educational base for a Chartered Engineer (CEng). A programme of accredited further learning is required to complete the educational base for CEng. See www.jbm.org.uk for further information and details of further learning programmes for CEng

The Joint Board of Moderators represents the following four professional bodies:
  • Institution of Civil Engineers
  • Institution of Structural Engineers
  • Chartered Institution of Highways and Transportation
  • Institute of Highway Engineers

The apprenticeship includes work-based elements and blended (on campus and online) learning.

Attendance is typically one day a week on campus. Online learning may be real-time or recorded. Real-time is preferred but recordings provided added flexibility for apprentices who may occasionally need to manage work commitments.

The University programmes provide a number of contact teaching and assessment hours (such as lectures, tutorials, lab work, projects, examinations), but the apprentice is also expected to undergo self-study time - to review lecture notes, prepare coursework assignments, work on projects and revise for assessments.

What to expect at the end of your apprenticeship

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; of 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.
