How does the Degree Apprenticeship work?
The course will take up to five years to complete, using a blended learning approach that combines on the job practical training with integrated academic learning. This blended approach is designed to be flexible, with a combination of face to face university teaching, online learning, research, and reflective practice and assessment. The experiential learning section of the course focuses on the student’s workplace and specific areas of project work they are undertaking. Learning is linked to the 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.
Apprentices learn about real estate theory and practice designed around a range of RICS pathways, including commercial real estate, planning and development, and valuation. Strong career themes run throughout all levels of the course which allows contextualisation to meet the needs of business.
