									                  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.
