A new industry apprenticeship for technicians has been launched by a consortium of the UK’s largest civil engineering consultancies.
The first of its kind, the consultancies’ civil engineering apprenticeship offers applicants the opportunity to gain
valuable hands-on experience while studying for a formal qualification for engineering technician status (Eng Tech, TMICE).
The apprenticeship has been developed by a consortium including Mott MacDonald, Hyder Consulting, Capita Symonds, WSP, Arup and Halcrow.
The employer group worked closely with Transport for London, the ICE and the National Apprenticeship Service to establish the programme in time for the 2010 academic year, with South Thames College as the learning provider.
There are currently eight apprentices from across the group who will complete the Edexcel BTEC Level 3 Diploma in Construction and the Built Environment (civil engineering) in 2013 and be eligible to sit the ICE’s EngTech professional review.
