UCEM works in partnership with many UK-based and international businesses to support their growing and developing workforces. We pride ourselves on giving exceptional support to our clients; whether that be helping with apprenticeship funding applications or advising on the programme choice for sponsorship.
BROWN & BANCROFT INTERIORS
Our client, Brown & Bancroft Interiors, was recently featured in Modus talking about the benefits of hiring an apprentice as an SME.
“I have felt very supported throughout my degree and apprenticeship. Attending quarterly meetings with both my workplace mentor and my UCEM co-ordinator allows me to raise any concerns I may have and reflect on my studies and career. My apprentice outcomes officer is always on hand to answer any questions I have and provide guidance when needed.”

“JLL has had a successful partnership with UCEM for many years. We believe strongly in the value of a diverse intake of graduates, including many non-cognates without real estate degrees from a wide range of subjects – everything from physics to drama. All our non-cognate graduates go through the UCEM MSc programme, whilst other colleagues follow apprenticeship and BSc courses. We know that UCEM’s teaching and support produces well trained professionals who are equipped to become qualified Chartered Surveyors and develop their careers from this excellent foundation.”

PAGE HARDY HARRIS LTD
“Page Hardy Harris has been working with UCEM for almost 15 years. We have found it to be a really beneficial collaboration. Three of our team are gaining real estate management degrees from UCEM and our latest apprentice is currently enrolled on the part-time programme. We have integrated the UCEM programme as a key element of our staff training and it has clearly helped us to develop high quality surveyors who we hope will lead Page Hardy Harris into the future.”
