Entry Requirements

Every employer is different and therefore the entry requirements can vary. As a guide, you ideally need GCSE grade 4 in English Language and Maths and in some cases ICT. However, we will work with you and provide additional support to help you achieve their requirements, either prior to your Apprenticeship via a pre-Apprenticeship or during the delivery of your programme.

Facilities

The faculty has two IT suites as well as a Learning Centre with course appropriate text books. The construction centrealso has a refectory. There is a Geo Technical Lab for a variety of practical activities as well as a survey store with the latest up to date surveying equipment.

Additional Costs

A variety of text books will be required, as well as appropriate PPE. PPE should normally be supplied by your employer but if this isn’t the case, steel toe caps are a must!
