Local Civil Engineering businesses and Fareham College have partnered to create The Solent Civil Engineering Employers’ Group.

Introduction

In partnership with The Solent Civil Engineering Employers’ Group, Fareham College is offering an exciting new Apprenticeship programme designed to prepare young people and adults for a career in civil engineering occupations.

The Civil Engineering and Groundworks Apprenticeship (CEGA) will enable participants to develop the skills needed to work in a diverse range of construction sites, and get paid a wage while gaining a recognised qualification.

CEGA will be delivered at The Civil Engineering Training Centre (CETC), and the course has been specially designed to ensure all apprentices are job ready after a twenty-week site preparation programme.
