This degree apprenticeship was developed in collaboration with our construction partners, to meet the requirements of a national contractor market, delivered mainly online with a blended approach. It will educate and train those in Construction Quantity Surveyor roles across the UK with Level 3 qualifications to progress to graduate level. 

The programme was developed in close collaboration with industry partners, to meet the Institute for Apprenticeships and Technical Education (IFATE), Construction Quantity Surveyor (degree) Apprenticeship Standard, and the growing workforce skills needs of the construction industry.  

Degree apprentices on the programme who successfully graduate, will have career progression opportunities across the construction sector, in a range of office and site roles such as: Quantity Surveyor, Construction Surveyor, Construction Cost Consultant, Cost Engineer, Cost Analyst, Cost Manager, Project Cost Co-ordinator, Project Cost Controller, Cost Planner, Commercial Manager.

It takes four years to complete the academic award and typically a further six months to complete the End Point Assessment (EPA) of the Degree Apprenticeship. The EPA will be partly representative of the review process required for chartered status of industry recognised institutions such as the Chartered Institution of Civil Engineering Surveyors (CICES) and the Royal Institution of Chartered Surveyors (RICS), so Apprentices will be ideally placed to also apply for professional qualification. However, additional preparation and payment would be required for this (details are available at the CICES Membership and RICS APC websites).

*Northumbria University also offers the Chartered Surveyor Degree Apprenticeship - Quantity Surveying BSc (Hons). It takes five years to complete that academic award and typically up to twelve months to the End Point Assessment (EPA) of the Degree Apprenticeship. The EPA in this case is the Royal Institution of Chartered Surveyors (RICS) Assessment of Professional Competence (APC), so the preparation and cost of applying for professional registration is included in the Degree Apprenticeship.*

Apprenticeship Standard

Apprenticeship programmes at Northumbria University are designed to support apprentices in acquiring the appropriate knowledge, skills and behaviour and retain the integrity of the apprenticeship standard as defined by IFATE .

The University are actively seeking Professional, Statutory and Regulatory Body (PSRB) accreditation from the Royal Institution of Chartered Surveyors (RICS) and the Chartered Institution of Civil Engineering Surveyors (CICES).
