You will attend college on a day release basis to study for a suitable level qualification, as well as benefit from the coaching and guidance of our experienced Chartered Engineers and technicians.  We encourage progression onto higher education up to and including degree level.

You may also attend site on occasion to view or inspect demolition works and construction in order to gain an understanding of the construction process and ideally see the projects you have been working on coming to life; and where appropriate attend meetings under the supervision of Project Engineers or Senior Technicians.
