Description

Work-based degree opportunities in Civil Engineering

The University of the Highlands and Islands will offer a Graduate Apprenticeship (GA) in Civil Engineering at Honours Degree level (SCQF Level 10) from September 2018. It currently provides a GA in Civil Engineering at SCQF Level 8 (Diploma in Higher Education).

This means the university now provides a work-based learning pathway in Civil Engineering to honours degree.

UHI is inviting employers with skills requirements in these areas to join us for an afternoon meeting to find out more about a Graduate Apprenticeship and consider the opportunities available to get involved and support your organisation’s skills development needs.

You’ll be welcomed with refreshments, followed by a short presentation from UHI, and finishing with an opportunity for some Q&A and discussion.

What is a Graduate Apprenticeship?

A work-based degree that new or existing employees can complete while working full-time.

Designed by industry, for industry, to help build the skills you need to succeed.

Based on the standards of professional/regulatory bodies, so your employees have a clear path to professional recognition.

Flexible enough to meet your own specific needs as an employer so you can:

  • Bring new talent, knowledge and skills into your business

  • Retain existing employees by supporting and investing in their development

  • Plan for your skills needs

  • Access an alternative route to traditional graduate schemes that ensures academic learning is contextualised and relevant for your business

The mix between work and learning means the work your employees do counts towards their qualification. Apprentices will experience formal learning through a blend of virtual learning and concentrated periods of time at our Inverness College UHI campus.

Funding for the learning costs for the GA are covered by Skills Development Scotland.

Book now to reserve your place.
