Architect apprenticeship

Work on the design of new buildings and the redesign of existing buildings

An architect leads the processes of planning, designing and reviewing the construction of buildings, and is usually the first point of contact on a design team, working with the client and contractor to make final decisions during the design and construction process. During the architect apprenticeship you’ll use your developed skills and knowledge to offer creative problem solving and strategic advice on various types of building, arts and construction projects. This includes developing building designs and taking into account multiple constraints, such as structural integrity, the character and location of a site, methods of construction, value for money, design quality and impact on the environment. An architect works responsibly to deliver the interests of their clients and the core requirements of cost, time and quality. Upon completion, you’ll achieve a postgraduate qualification in architecture prescribed by the Architects Registration Board.
