WELCOME TO CETC CETC is a new Civil Engineering Training Centre based in Hampshire, which offers unique and industry-focused apprenticeship programmes and professional training courses to develop the next generation of civil engineers and groundworkers. The Centre was established in September 2017 in response to a county-wide skills shortage resulting from an aging workforce, a boom in new-build projects and current insufficient levels of training, factors that were identified to be hindering civil engineering growth and expansion in the south of England. To tackle the problem head-on, a group of 11 local civil engineering employers set up the Solent Civil Engineering Employer Group (SCEEG) in conjunction with Fareham College to create a training programme that would address these issues, support the construction industry across the region and beyond, and have a positive economic impact through creating more job opportunities. The result of this collaboration was the design and development of CETC, a purpose-built

two-acre mock construction site on the edge of the Solent Airport in Lee-on-the-Solent, dedicated to the delivery of specialist Civil Engineering & Groundworks Apprenticeships and professional training courses.

WHAT OUR EMPLOYERS SAY… Since it began, there has been excellent feedback from employers taking part in the Civil Engineering and Groundworks Apprenticeship scheme. They have highlighted the exceptional calibre of the apprentices recruited, the firstrate level of training they have received prior to arriving onsite, and welcomed the positive experience of actively participating in developing fit-for-purpose civil engineering and groundworks training. David Richardson is the Faculty Director for Construction and Civil Engineering at Fareham College, and responsible for the running of CETC, the delivery of its training programmes, and liaising with members of the Employer Group to ensure the scheme meets their needs. “We have seen extensive demand and a high level of competition for places on the apprenticeship, and the calibre of students we recruit is extremely high – they must be enthusiastic, eager to work hard and committed, and in return they receive employment with some of the area’s best employers and are offered great opportunities for progression. The Centre and its staff deliver first class training and, at an early stage, apprentices are fully aware of what is expected of them and what a career in this sector will entail, which is of great importance to their future success and essential to meeting the requirements of the employers we work with.”

Mark Wells, CEO of Blanchard Wells and Chair of the Solent Civil Engineering Employer Group, describes how the scheme is leading the way in tackling major issues facing construction development in the South. “There is over £15 billion worth of construction-based development planned in Hampshire alone over the next five years; all of this, whether it is residential housing, commercial, infrastructure or road builds, require the services of groundworkers and civil engineers. As an industry we struggle to attract and develop the skilled workforce we need to meet the volume and complexity of civil engineering projects in the region. CETC will deliver what we need and raise the awareness in young people of the fantastic careers that this industry has to offer. The members of the Solent Civil Engineering Employer Group came together because we recognised the importance of making sure we had access to a skilled workforce. The way we work together, and the apprenticeship training we provide, is completely unique. Our collaboration with Fareham College and the Solent LEP has been very productive and the completion of the new CETC facility will give us even greater leverage to expand our offering and continue to pioneer high-quality training in a live environment to take the industry forward.”


Knights Brown is an independent, regional construction company with offices in Hampshire, Kent and South Wales. Each year Knights Brown recruits growing numbers of apprentices, which now account for 10% of employee headcount. Tony Cutajar is a site manager with the firm. “To maintain and grow our directly employed workforce, it’s essential that we attract new people into construction and that Knights Brown stands out as a company people want to join. The benefit of CETC’s civil engineering groundworks apprenticeship is that the apprentices are job ready after the 20-week site preparation programme. This means they are being productive and effective from their first day on-site, which is rewarding for them as well as being advantageous to us. Thirteen apprentices have joined us from the first four apprenticeship intakes and once they have completed the two-year scheme, we will be offering them permanent jobs. It’s great that we can look forward to a regular supply of new recruits through this route and that we gain employees who are committed to the company and their profession.” Emily Horton, HR Manager at Aeropark Ltd, has been a member of the Solent Civil Engineering Employer Group since its formation. Instrumental in the scheme’s development, she says that it is providing an invaluable injection of talent to Aeropark’s operations. “There is a national shortage of skilled groundworkers across all construction trades at the moment, coupled with an aging workforce which means we will soon lose experienced operatives who have spent years developing their skills and are highly sought after. Without the apprenticeship scheme at CETC, we would not be in a position to fill the gaps in our workforce. This makes the initiative extremely important to us, not only to fill those gaps, but to attract more people to our industry. There is a huge misconception about working in construction and we have made really positive strides to educate young people that working on-site is more than just muddy boots! It is a fantastic career option which could open up opportunities down the line for them to consider roles in site management, contract management, surveying or engineering.

We are incredibly proud of all our operatives and it has been wonderful watching our apprentices develop under the supervision and guidance of our on-site mentors. As the apprentices come to us ‘site ready’ we have foreman now asking for apprentices on their sites as they see the value and contribution they bring to the team. This is down to the practical training they receive at CETC and is a huge selling point of the course. Aeropark are so grateful to have been part of this initiative from the start and seeing the progress that has been made to date has been hugely rewarding.” Kevin Miskella, Construction Director at Carlton Civil Engineering Ltd, has been highly impressed with the quality and commitment shown by apprentices who have come through the training programme so far. “As a member of the Solent Civil Engineering Employer Group, we have assisted Fareham College in setting up CETC to produce apprentices who are completely suited to our needs, and who are betterprepared to continue learning when they join us on-site. The skills that apprentices develop during their training at CETC means that they come to work on our sites as valued members of the construction team, and are immediately a practical help to the site foreman and other colleagues. Our responsibility as an employer is then to support and mentor the apprentice, ensuring they accrue further skills as new processes are undertaken on-site, enabling them to improve upon those already gained, which further increases their value to our operations. At Carlton we have seven apprentices on various sites, coming into our industry following a curriculum designed specifically for our needs. Our existing site teams have completely embraced this initiative, and are genuinely excited about helping to produce the next generation of operatives. They are also encouraged and uplifted by our efforts and investment to provide more suitably equipped young people for a career on-site.”

DELIVERY OF APPRENTICESHIP PROGRAMMES The way in which our apprenticeships are delivered will vary depending on the particular programme, but the structure selected for each is carefully composed to ensure it is as effective as possible in meeting the requirements of the particular sector to which is relates. Delivery models may involve an intensive initial training programme, during which apprentices will be based at CETC in Lee-on-the-Solent on a daily basis. This format ensures apprentices are ‘site ready’ and equipped with the relevant skills, certifications and licences needed to contribute to site operations as soon as they join their employer for the remainder of the apprenticeship. Other delivery options may include weekly day release or block training periods.

ASSESSMENT The way in which apprentices are assessed depends on whether the programme they are undertaking is an apprenticeship standard or framework. Frameworks require apprentices to achieve recognised qualifications. These can be delivered in different ways. Some are competence-based and involve a professional coach supporting the apprentice to carry out work-based tasks and checking that they are confident in their work. Other qualifications are knowledge-based to ensure the apprentice understands what they are doing in their work and why. Some of these qualifications may require apprentices to pass an exam.

end of their programme to check they are fully competent in their role and have the right skills and attitude to succeed in the industry. This is called the end point assessment, and we will decide with you as the employer when the apprentice is ready for this. It can involve practical tasks, an exam, a project or a professional discussion. All Level 2 apprenticeship programmes require apprentices to have English and Maths qualifications at grade 9-3 (A*-D) or above; if candidates do not hold these qualifications already they will be supported by Fareham College to achieve them before the end of their apprenticeship programme.

THE BENEFITS FOR APPRENTICES The outstanding benefits offered by CETC’s apprenticeship programmes promote high levels of motivation, dedication and self-fulfilment for the apprentices taking part, who receive: þþ high quality training delivered at a unique and nationally-recognised facility þþ the guarantee of an interview for full time employment once the apprenticeship has ended þþ completion of essential certifications and licences þþ excellent onward career prospects þþ a competitive salary paid throughout the training period þþ a daily travel allowance – where applicable.

Standards require apprentices to learn the essential knowledge, skills and behaviours of their job through a variety of learning methods including workshops, tutorials, online learning, assignments and projects. They will then be assessed at the 17


RATES OF PAY

SCREENING CRITERIA

Due to the nature of the delivery model for some programmes; we have agreed payrates in place for specific courses which employers must adhere to when enrolling a learner. This ensures consistency and parity amongst the learners and avoids potential disputes, ensuring everyone is treated fairly and focused on learning. This does not apply to all courses as we recognise that certain programmes are delivered in a different manner and do not therefore require these levels of consistency; for example, courses where existing employees are enrolled for upskilling (typically level 3 courses) and courses where delivery is via a traditional day release method.

Whether you choose to make your own referrals or utilise Fareham College’s recruitment service, all apprentices aiming to gain a place on a CETC apprenticeship programme must meet strict criteria to ensure only the best candidates work with your business.

Where agreed payrates are in place, we believe them to be competitive and higher than the average apprenticeship rates paid elsewhere, thus ensuring we are attracting and retaining high quality applicants. In an extremely competitive industry, learner retention is vital. Therefore, some programmes have an agreed bonus retention scheme which becomes payable one year after completion of the apprenticeship. For more information on applicable payrates for each course please contact us on T: 01329 815 400 E: cetc@fareham.ac.uk

THE RECRUITMENT PROCESS The recruitment of apprentices can take place either through your organisation’s own recruitment channels, or through Fareham College’s recruitment service, depending upon your preference. If you decide to recruit your own prospective apprentices, once you have selected your chosen candidates they will be referred to Fareham College to undertake the administrative elements of the apprenticeship application process. If you require support to attract applicants to fill your vacancies, Fareham College’s wide recruitment network and dedicated marketing campaigns can identify high-quality candidates who we can put forward for your consideration.

18

Apprentices must: þþ be physically fit, possess a positive attitude, reliability and an enthusiastic approach to teamwork þþ have a genuine interest in the construction industry, groundworks and civil engineering þþ have an English and Maths qualification at the required level þþ present a good reference from their previous school, college or employer. These elements are assessed during a screening process, facilitated by the College. During this process candidates will also be required to complete all relevant application documentation, provide I.D and undertake a criminal record check. Only on satisfactory completion of this screening criteria will applicants be in a position to proceed with the interview process.

TRAINEESHIPS

Some candidates may show excellent promise for a career in the industry, but may need support to develop their functional skills or level of English and Maths first (a requirement of all apprenticeship qualifications). In this case, the option of a Traineeship is available, which lasts for a minimum of six weeks and helps candidates to gain the core skills needed to progress onto a full apprenticeship programme – while still gaining work experience at the same time. In addition, some courses require that learners are enrolled onto the course via a Traineeship before progressing onto the apprenticeship. This enables the learner to gain a greater understanding of what is required of them to successfully pass the course and if it is the right career choice for them. It also provides you the opportunity to trial the learner before committing to the apprenticeship and making financial investments in that learner. Ultimately we have found this leads to greater success and increased chances of employment.
