Is this the apprenticeship for you?

If you’re looking for an exciting hands-on career where no two days are the same, then this Level 3 Civil Engineering Technician Apprenticeship may be for you.

Civil Engineering Technicians provide vital technical support to engineers and other construction professionals in all stages of the built environment and infrastructure. In a variety of practical settings, you’ll learn how to design technical solutions, analyse and solve technical problems, deliver a project on time and on budget, and ensure sites are operating safely and producing at a high quality.

This broad skillset opens you to up a number of exciting and important areas, including sustainable construction, structural integrity, geotechnics, materials, tunnelling, marine and coastal engineering, water, waste management, flood management, transportation, and power.

What knowledge and skills will you develop?

  • Industry-specific techniques and methods used to design, build and maintain projects
  • Technical engineering principles
  • Effective communication including drawing conventions, technical reports and terminology
  • How to comply with safe working practices
  • The importance and impact of sustainable development within the industry
  • Transferable skills such as teamwork, quality control, and time management

What do you need to apply?

Employers set their own requirements, but generally, you’ll be expected to have at least 5 GCSEs at Grade C or above, including English and Science, and Maths at Grade B or above (or their equivalent).

If you don’t have Level 2 English and Maths when you start, we will support you to achieve this by the time your apprenticeship finishes.

How will I be assessed?

There will be a combination of multiple choice and written exams, portfolio work, interviews and practical assessments.

To be successful you must pass the Presentation and Structured Interview. This assessment will satisfy the requirements for registration as an Engineering Technician by the Engineering Council. The Assessor Panel will consist of two experienced, qualified, and trained Civil Engineers.

Where can this apprenticeship take you?

After successfully completing your apprenticeship you could move into site management roles or specialise in certain construction areas.
