How does the Degree Apprenticeship work?
The experiential learning section of the course focuses on the student’s workplace and specific areas of project work they are undertaking. This is linked to the Royal Institution of Chartered Surveyors (RICS) Assessment of Professional Competence helping the student work towards the End Point Assessment for the degree apprenticeship. The employer is also expected to engage with this section of study to help the student progress through their training.
Strong career themes run throughout all levels of the course which enables contextualisation for you to co-create modules to meet the needs of your business.
Students will be required to attend the University on a day release basis.
