What will the apprentice be doing?
So, what is transport planning all about?
Can you imagine what it would be like to have an impact on the everyday journeys of those around you? Well as a transport planner you’ll be doing just that. Working alongside our network of experts, you’ll be helping to ensure that future transport and traffic plan designs continue to benefit the public and sustain the environment.
Working on projects both in the UK and internationally, we help to create transport strategies for government bodies and organisations such as hospitals, schools, and major companies. We use the latest technology to carry out assessments and to create transport plans and models. With the guidance and support of our experts, you’ll be working on a variety of transport jobs supporting the development of transport strategies, the delivery of major projects and the design of local transport improvement schemes.
What training will the apprentice take and what qualification will the apprentice get at the end?
You will be taught on block release at Leeds College of Building so will have the opportunity to experience campus life while away studying.
You will have a line manager, mentor and buddy as well as the support of your wider team. We also have a dedicated learning and development team who will be on hand to offer advice and assistance when required.
At the end of all your hard work, you’ll have a Level 3 Diploma in Transport Planning along with the opportunity to become a qualified engineering technician (EngTech).
What is the expected career progression after this apprenticeship?
Upon successful completion of your advanced level apprenticeship, you will have the option to undertake a degree level apprenticeship. This will lead to a BSc in Transport Planning, and further development on our graduate programme.
We'll also support you on your journey to gaining chartered status with The Transport Planning Society (TPS) or The Chatered Institution of Highways and Transportation (CIHT)
