Becoming an Apprentice

Doing an apprenticeship is a great opportunity to gain a qualification and practical, on-the-job skills at the same time. As an apprentice you will work within the Built Environment, graduate with no student debt and be given regular time off your paid job to study.

If you are currently employed within the Built Environment, in England only*, then you will need your employer’s support as they will fund or co-fund your apprenticeship. If you are looking to do an apprenticeship but are not currently employed, then you will need to search for an apprenticeship first.

UCEM currently offers five different apprenticeship programmes: The Surveying Technician Advanced Apprenticeship (Level 3), the Facilities Management Supervisor Apprenticeship (Level 3), the Chartered Surveyor Degree Apprenticeship (Level 6), the Building Control Surveyor Degree Apprenticeship (Level 6) and the Senior Leader Master’s Degree Apprenticeship (Level 7).

Our Apprenticeship Quality Statement (open in PDF) sets out our intentions regarding the quality of the apprenticeship programmes that we offer.

*Apprenticeships are currently only available to apprentices who work at least 50% of the time in England.
