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 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 runs three different level of apprenticeship programmes. The Surveying Technician Advanced Apprenticeship (Level 3), the Chartered Surveyor Degree Apprenticeship (Level 6) and the Senior Leader Master’s Degree Apprenticeship (Level 7).

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