You will be joining an experienced and engaging team as you begin your career in Engineering. You will be provided with extensive on the job training and will be fully supported as you study for a BEng (Hons) Graduate Apprenticeship in Civil Engineering part-time.
The BEng (Hons) Graduate Apprenticeship in Civil Engineering is a 4-year programme of study designed for employees selected by their company as displaying the potential to follow an honours degree.
The first year of the programme introduces the fundamental subjects associated with some of the key areas of civil engineering. A Mathematics course, Maths for Civil Engineering, is offered to apprentices without Higher Maths or equivalent. This ensures these apprentices will be equipped to cope with the higher level of Maths in Year 2. Apprentices in possession of Higher Maths (or equivalent) are exempt from the Maths for Civil Engineering course.
Year 2 of the programme – to which holders of relevant qualifications (e.g. HNC) and/or relevant work experience can join directly – develops the material covered in Year 1 and introduces new aspects associated with construction management, hydraulics and key civil engineering materials.
Year 3 sees the introduction of fairly advanced topics, with an emphasis on design and application in some of the courses. The key subject area of geotechnics is introduced in this year alongside contracts and procurement and environmental engineering.
In the final (Honours) year 4, apprentices will spend a significant amount of time on work-based project work (both individual and group projects). The geotechnical subjects are advanced to Honours level and advanced structural design is enabled through different courses. An option course is offered in this year too.
These roles will be based from our Story Scotland division, with our office being based in Blantyre. Travel will be required to site, so a driving license will be advantageous. The ideal candidate will have the suitable entry requirements for the University (SQA Highers at AAAB or ABBBB, or A-Levels at ABC or BBB). In addition to this, the ideal candidate will be self-motivated, a team player and driven.
