Fancy a career in Engineering? We can offer you the opportunity to work on some of the world’s most exciting engineering and design projects. We invest in your learning and development and we value the ideas and innovation you could bring to our work. So, if you’re ready, we can’t wait to get you involved.
First though, we thought you’d like to know how our apprenticeship programme works. An apprenticeship enables you to earn a salary whilst you are studying for nationally recognised qualifications. You’ll get to work alongside and learn from our experts who have a wide range of knowledge, capability and experiences to share with you with a programme designed to provide you with the knowledge and skills to be a competent Engineering Technician.
There’s no such thing as a typical day at WSP. Your role will be varied and your learning will be fast paced. One day can be completely different to the next. You will have the opportunity to learn new skills using specialist software suited to the area of the business you are working in, such as AutoCAD and Autodesk Revit.
You may be involved with taking concepts, ideas and designs from an architect or engineer and creating drawings using the software to match those given. If you’re pulling together packages of drawings you might need to print, trim and fold these to be sent off to site or the client.
Where practical, you’ll get the opportunity to visit site and see the projects you’ve been working on, coming to life.
We understand that all apprentices are different. Therefore, we tailor your training and development to help you to achieve your own personal goals. You’ll undertake a supervised programme of in-company training and college teaching.
You will study towards a BTEC Level 3 (the equivalent of A-Levels) in; building services, civil engineering, transport planning, rail design, surveying or business administration over a two to three year period on either a block-or-day release basis.
