The Construction Technical and Professional Advanced Apprenticeship is for learners who are starting out on their journey in a technical, supervisory or managerial career within various fields of the construction industry. It is suitable for those looking to work towards becoming an Architect, Quantity surveyor, Surveying technician or Technical support person.
This programme is also suitable for adult learners already employed in the industry, who have accumulated related prior experience but do not have a relevant technical qualification. Successful Learners will achieve a Level 3 NVQ Diploma as part of each pathway.
Learning is through a combination of on and off-the-job training, with learners attending college on a day release basis during term time. The rest of the week is spent earning and learning in the workplace. Apprentices are assessed on a continual basis through a combination of knowledge and practical assessment activities. This includes the assessment of activities in the workplace.
