Institution of Civil Engineers To do: Ad hoc recruitment Capacity in FE Mentoring/assessing WBL Demand for places outstrips supply Culture Developments: Professional engagement and EngTechNow Trailblazers
Institution of Civil Engineers ICE/CIBSE L3 apprenticeship starts (2-3 yrs): Apprenticeships South Thames College Leeds College of Building City of Bristol College Exeter College Bridgend College Llandrillo Stephenson College Liverpool Community College Southampton City College City College Norwich Newcastle College Solihull College New College Nottingham College of North West London
Institution of Civil Engineers The numbers industry needs aren’t going to be coming through the universities (and how many of us monitor overseas students numbers?). Decline in part time HE numbers and increase in Level 3. Apprenticeship is now a “brand”; part time day-release isn’t. Possible model for industries that aren’t grouped around a major employer and supply chain. We need different ways of recruiting. Untapped talent includes those with ‘wrong’ subjects. Around 60% of our Level 3 apprentices want to go all the way up. Professional bodies need to make progression easier via part-time routes. Conclusions
