Course overview

Working in franchise partnership with Leeds Beckett University we can now deliver a Degree Apprenticeship in Civil Engineering Site Management.

This course is designed to enable apprentices to gain an in-depth understanding of civil engineering and meet the key attributes required to be a civil engineer, and will take up to 3.5 years to complete, please note this does not include the End Point Assessment (EPA). 

Apprentices will be in full-time employment whilst attending the College on a block release basis, utilising a blended learning approach, with six independent one-week blocks throughout the year, 2 of which will be delivered via distant learning.

Apprentices will work towards the EPA with the Institution of Civil Engineers (ICE) and can achieve Incorporated Engineer (IEng) status on successful completion.

Apprentices must demonstrate knowledge, skills and behaviours gained against the ICE attributes.

The course is specifically aimed at those wishing to progress on to careers in civil engineering site management, but will also allow entry into careers with project management companies, government agencies, local authorities and modelling specialists. Typical job titles can include: Site Manager, Sub Agent, Assistant Site Manager or Section Engineer.
