If you would prefer to combine study with practical work experience, our apprenticeship routes may be for you. We offer apprenticeships in Quantity Surveying, Building Surveying and Project Management. On the apprenticeship route you will be employed by EC Harris and paid a salary and then will attend college on a day release or block release basis to achieve the relevant qualification, but will spend the majority of your time gaining real life experience in the work place, learning from the team around you
Quantity Surveying and Building Surveying Apprenticeships
Our advanced apprenticeships in Quantity Surveying and Building Surveying offer those with GCSE or A Level qualifications the chance to work towards an NVQ Level 3 in Surveying, Property and Maintenance and a BTEC Level 3 Diploma in Construction and the Built Environment. Successful completion of your apprenticeship will enable you to achieve Associate membership of the RICS. Apprentices often then progress to studying for a degree on a part time basis (achievable in a shorter time frame than normal for those who have completed this apprenticeship), and achieving chartered membership of the RICS - all of which will be fully funded and supported by EC Harris. Entry requirements are a minimum of 5 GCSEs grades A*- C including Maths and English.
Project Management Apprenticeships
If you have completed your A Levels and are interested in a career in Project Management, our new apprenticeship developed in conjunction with the Association for Project Management (APM) could be a great route for you to get into the profession. Our Project Management apprenticeship involves a combination of college based structured training and real life experience. You will work towards the APM Level 4 Project Management qualification and will also be supported with extensive ‘on-the-job’ learning as you develop your capabilities in the workplace. Entry Requirements are a minimum of five GCSEs grades A*- C including Maths and English, plus a minimum of two A Levels.
As an Apprentice Quantity Surveyor, I already work on cost planning and estimating prices of materials, as well as liaising with architects, fellow surveyors and engineers. The best aspect of an apprenticeship is the opportunity to go out on site, where you get to see the projects you have been working on. I would thoroughly recommend apprenticeships as they open up a whole new future of learning skills and meeting new people.
