Advanced Apprenticeship in Civil Engineering Civil Engineering is all about creating, improving and protecting the environment in which we live. It provides the facilities for day-to-day life and for transport and industry to go about its work. Civil engineers design, build and maintain bridges, roads, railways and tunnels. They also design and build tall buildings and large structures, like Wembley Stadium, so that they can last for hundreds of years and can withstand all weather conditions. Like the great civilisations before us, our civilisation relies more than ever on teams of inventive people to design, build and maintain the sophisticated environment that surrounds us. Without civil engineers we wouldn’t have a constant supply of clean water, roads, bridges or trains to get to work in the morning, or sustainable energy to help us save our planet. Here at Devon County Council we are looking for four apprentice Civil Engineers to join our new scheme in our Engineering Design and Highway Management groups who specialise in the design and maintenance of bridges and highways in Devon. This is an exciting opportunity to undertake both a BTEC National Certificate in Civil Engineering and an NVQ level 3 in Built Environment Design or Constructing Contracting Operations. After two years on the scheme you should be ready to make the first step onto our Career Progression Scheme as a Trainee Technician. With experience, further learning and of course hard work and commitment you could eventually achieve a salary of over £30,000 a year and make a real difference to the quality of life for the people of Devon. To apply you will need a minimum of 5 GCSE’s with a grade “C” or above in Maths, English and Science or equivalent and be eligible for full LSC funding (please refer to your local Learning and Skills Council for criteria). We anticipate your start date to be the last week in August, in preparation for the course to start in September.
