Alongside working on one of our sites across the UK, our apprentices study on a block release basis at Leeds College of Building. Accommodation is provided for apprentices during their study blocks in Leeds and travel expenses are covered by the company.
Apprentices will work towards a Level 4 Higher Apprenticeship and will get the opportunity to gain a professional qualification through either the ICE, RICS, CICES or CIOB.
Upon successful completion of the Level 4 programme, many of our Apprentices progress on to a Level 6 Apprenticeship, where they top-up their qualification to a Degree.
