Combining learning while working is a fantastic way to kick-start a career in civil engineering. You will work on projects that transform lives, gain invaluable experience from knowledgeable colleagues and tutors, and you can earn as you learn.
How long is an apprenticeship?
Apprenticeships may run from a minimum of two years (equivalent to Highers in Scotland and two A Levels in the rest of the UK) or 4-5 years for degree-level apprenticeships.
As an apprentice, you are likely to spend approximately 80% of the time working and 20% learning but this will vary depending on the scheme you undertake and where you are doing it:
- At your workplace
- At your college or university through a day-release or a block-release
- Through self-guided study or research
There are regional differences in the programmes on offer across the UK and the Channel Islands. More information for each region is detailed below.
