UCEM launches Level 3 Facilities Management Supervisor apprenticeship

UCEM is offering its first apprenticeship in Facilities Management (FM) this year.

The first programme to launch will be the Level 3 FM Supervisor apprenticeship, with the first intake due to start in June 2019.

Facilities Management is a key service that underpins effective management of the Built Environment by creating safe, productive spaces where an organisation’s workforce can thrive. The programme will be of interest to all types of organisation in the public and private sector that employ FM teams to manage their workplaces. It will also be relevant to companies that provide outsourced FM services to clients.

Apprentices who successfully complete the programme will be awarded the Institute of Workplace and Facilities Management (IWFM) Level 3 Diploma in Facilities Management and will also meet the qualifying criteria for Associate Membership of the IWFM.

Stephen Bartle, Director – Commercial and Business Development, commented: “UCEM has been delivering apprenticeships for over three years and now has more than 900 apprentices on programme. In response to requests from our clients we are starting to broaden the range of programmes we offer to help them address their workforce development needs.

“Having successfully delivered the Surveying Technician apprenticeship since 2015/16, we were pleased to be judged by Ofsted during their recent monitoring visit to be making reasonable progress on all themes. We are delighted to now be working with IWFM and partner employers to offer our second Level 3 apprenticeship programme.”
