Course details may be subject to change
This apprenticeship programme aims to provide you with the knowledge, skills and behaviours required to pursue a career in civil engineering.
You will attend college on a day-release basis to study modules, such as construction principles, design, and technology, structural mechanics, whilst also being employed and working as an apprentice in the civil engineering industry. Professional Body Registration - If you wish, you can apply for EngTech status as a part of your End Point Assessment. This is to be funded by yourself and must be indicated on your End Point Assessment application.
This programme aims to provide you with the knowledge, skills and behaviours required to pursue a career in civil engineering. You will engage in classroom-based study and practical learning on-the-job. You will attend college on a day-release basis whilst also being employed and working as an apprentice in the civil engineering industry.
You will apply critical reasoning and analysis techniques to solve engineering problems and develop your personal and business skills to prepare you for the demands of a professional civil engineering environment.
You will study modules that focus on areas such as health and safety, construction principles, design, and technology, structural mechanics, further maths, surveying, science and civil engineering as well as developing knowledge, skills and behaviours relating to the workplace.
Modules Studied As a part of this course you will complete a BTEC National Diploma and create a portfolio of work-based evidence. The BTEC National Diploma will include the following mandatory units:
Health and Safety in Construction
Site Engineering for Construction
Further Mathematics for Construction
Construction in Civil Engineering.
And the following optional units (subject to change):
Surveying in Construction
Graphical Detailing in Construction
Principles and Applications of Structural Mechanics.
All subjects are to be confirmed at the start of the academic year.
As well as the above, you will also be assessed against the knowledge, skills and behaviours set out in the apprenticeship standard to create your portfolio that demonstrates and provides evidence to support your learning.
You could progress to HNC Construction and the Built Environment or HNC Civil Engineering.
