In 2010, responding to the lack of structured alternatives to a traditional graduate career path, Halcrow and a number of its industry partners established an engineering apprenticeship scheme in the UK. An audible buzz around the programme has seen the original six-strong consortium of consultants expand to include more than 12 companies, comprising a mix of contractors, consultancies and clients.
Halcrow’s intake has also grown exponentially, from one apprentice in the launch year to four at present, and the company plans to take on more trainees in the future. New recruits initially work towards a technician qualification over three years, with the programme providing a potential path all the way to chartered status.
In this video Ray, Sean and Zubair talk about their experiences to date and aspirations for the future.
