Solomons Europe is in the running for the Apprenticeship Initiative of the Year gong at the 2022 CN Workforce Awards.
The company is one of 8 businesses that have been shortlisted in the category, after its unique MSc Apprenticeship Plus Programme caught the eye of the awards judges.
The award recognises a business that can demonstrate a company-wide ethos to attract both young people or those in the middle of a career and support them into long-term careers in construction through apprenticeships.
And we think our specially developed MSc Apprenticeship Plus route, launched in 2021, does just that!
The programme comprises a two-year Quantity Surveying Level 6, MSc Apprenticeship. On successful completion apprentices embark on a further nine-months of training before taking an MRICS End Point Assessment and review – and the prospect of securing much-coveted Chartership, which can typically take upwards of 5 years to achieve.
We partnered with the University College of Estate Management, whose courses are underpinned by the Royal Institute of Chartered Surveyors (RICS), to develop this industry leading programme designed to help fuel our continued growth and address the acute skills shortage in our industry.
The winner of the hotly contested Apprenticeship Initiative of the Year category, along with 17 other honours, will be revealed at a glittering ceremony held at the JW Marriott Grosvenor House Hotel, London, on November 8.
CN Workforce Awards, formerly known as the CN Talent Awards, are run by Construction News, a leading provider of UK construction industry news, opinion, analysis and events.
