The Digital Construction Apprenticeship (Kier)
Kier has launched a new two-year digital construction apprenticeship with a focus on applying Building Information Modelling (BIM) to inspire the next generation of talent to consider a career within the built environment
Developed through the trailblazer process, where groups of employers come together as early adopters of new apprenticeship standards, it builds on the Digital Engineering Technician Standard and this new digital construction apprenticeship is set to be unlike any other.
Kier’s first cohort of apprentices have been selected, following a high level of interest in the new apprenticeship, and they will now begin a two-year programme within its construction and infrastructure businesses. The apprentices will work on projects across a range of frameworks and sectors requiring BIM Level 2 deliverables and innovative solutions, and will complement and strengthen existing teams.
