What Mia Fawsitt says:

I decided to come to Perth College UHI because it is close to home and I want to have good experiences. The reason for choosing this course was that I want to become a Civil Engineer. I enjoyed everything about the course but the specific things we were taught about Civil Engineering were really interesting.

Foundation Apprenticeships are a new opportunity being offered to pupils in the senior phase of secondary school. Pupils are given the opportunity to complete the first stages of a Modern Apprenticeship along with traditional subjects such as Maths and English.The Foundation Apprenticeship (FA) in Civil Engineering provides candidates with achievement from component parts of two Modern Apprenticeships sitting within CITB’s Modern Apprenticeship Framework – Construction: Technical L3 (SCQF 6/7) in either Civil Engineering contracting or consultancy.Starting in S5, pupils will also complete a placement or industry challenge with a local employer while working towards the qualification through school and college. Supported by school, learners will attend a minimum of one day in college for two years.This FA will introduce the skills necessary for the modern professional Civil Engineering Technician and provide an insight to the many career options available.
