Doing an apprenticeship
Apprenticeships are pathways taken by individuals who are keen to learn while they earn. They often follow on from or are directly linked to technical routes through school and college education which may involve taking BTECs, Diplomas, NVQs, HNCs and HNDs or other work-related qualifications. You will develop specific practical skills and the knowledge needed for working in the engineering or construction industry.
You could consider going to a University Technical College
, which offer a range of technical and scientific subjects. They offer a clear pathway into engineering, construction and related industries. You can expect to progress to higher education or apprenticeships and later go on to specialise in civil engineering, construction, architecture, or other engineering roles.
Individuals who follow this pathway can qualify for Technician Membership
of the Institution once they have gained sufficient technical knowledge and practical experience.
