Civils firms praised for apprenticeship take up

ICE membership director Séan Harris has welcomed the growing support for apprenticeships across the sector.

“An engineering apprenticeship is a gateway to a rewarding career which can result in men and women reaching the top”, he said. “The ICE welcomes aspiring professional engineers and technicians on apprenticeships and we support them throughout their careers. The growing interest from civil engineering firms – and the political will to create more apprenticeships – is extremely promising.” He was speaking ahead of National Apprenticeship Week (14-18 March), a nationwide drive to promote apprenticeships.

But Harris said the quality of the schemes was as important as the quantity. “Schemes must be set to rigorous standards, so apprentices are equipped to progress on the career ladder and go on to achieve a recognised professional qualification.”
