Civil Engineering Apprenticeship

In order to develop the skills of our young civil engineers and meet the growing needs for qualified practitioners in the island, CIGPE, Trackers Apprenticeship Programme and University College Jersey have created a partnership to deliver professional Civil Engineering qualifications to students here in Jersey, via an Apprenticeship pathway.

Qualifications available

  • HNC Higher Apprenticeship in Civil Engineering (2 Years)

This post 18 option is open to candidates leaving school or sixth form with an A-level or Level 3 profile.  It is also available as an entry-level qualification to those already working in industry and hold appropriate experience/qualification to undertake the course (see Entry requirements for more info).

Qualification

Course structure
Delivered as a part-time, 1 day per week course, split into the following;
Year 1: Materials and geology, Construction practice and Engineering mechanics
Year 2: Structures and Construction technology, Engineering surveying and Mathematics

How does it work?
As an Apprenticeship pathway, the qualification allows candidates to study, whilst working full time in industry.  Whilst the qualification is open to any candidates wanting to undertake it independently, our partnership with Trackers Apprenticeship Programme allows candidates to undertake the qualification fully funded through their employer and the Government of Jersey.

This partnership also includes dedicated mentoring from Trackers throughout the 2 years, which includes regular catch-ups where students receive impartial support and guidance, as well as reviews with employers to track progress and development throughout the year.

How much does it cost?
£9,250 over 2 years (£4,625 per year).  In addition, £1,530 per year to cover the cost of flights and accommodation for a residential visit at LSBU.
Candidates applying through Trackers with the support of their employer can receive full funding via the following model:
If company annual turnover is over £300,000, funding is split 50:50 per year.
If company turnover is under £300,000, funding is split 75:25 (Trackers:Employer) per year.
