Civil engineering graduate apprenticeships offer a new route to BEng (hons)

Research output: Contribution to specialist publicationArticle


The routes available for early career engineers to obtain degree level qualification are changing. The options available for engineers have traditionally been either; take a break from work and enter into full-time education whilst racking up a large personal debt, or undertake a day-release part-time programme to attain a lower level of qualification than full-time degrees.
Apprenticeship degrees are breaking the mould.
The Scottish version of apprenticeship degrees are fast becoming the new way to upskill early career engineers. Since their introduction in 2017, Graduate Apprenticeships (GA) are transforming not only how universities deliver degrees, but the ways in which organisations grow and develop their employees – new recruits and existing staff alike.
