Degree apprenticeships in Construction Professions in Wales

Closed 30 Sep 2023

Opened 14 Aug 2023


CITB has been leading work on behalf of Welsh Government to develop and offer Degree apprenticeships in Construction Professions in Wales.

Thanks to a partnership between Welsh Government, Hefcw, the Construction Industry Training Board (CITB) and three Welsh universities, the first cohort of students should be starting their apprenticeships and degree courses as early as September 2024.

University of South Wales (USW), University of Wales Trinity St Davids, Wrexham University have accepted the invitation by the Higher Education Funding Council for Wales (HEFCW) to offer the degree programmes.

The new degree apprenticeships being created under the project have been subject to external consultation with industry, include civil engineering, surveying, quantity surveying, and construction management.

Working Closely with professional bodies such as the ICE, CIOB, RICS, CIHT and others, the aim of the project is to ensure graduates have the higher-level professional knowledge and skills needed by employers.

In addition to the focused consultation that has taken place to date we are now seeking broader views on the Skills, Knowledge, and Behaviours for each professional occupation: 

When you complete the short survey it will ask you which occupation pathway(s) you are commenting on.

We look forward to your response, views, and suggestions.
