Course summary

An apprenticeship is a job first, with specialist training to support professional development. The industry has an increasing need for suitably qualified people in many different land-based sectors. The course is delivered over 5 years and apprentices will need to attend 8 block weeks of teaching per academic year, with supporting activities in the workplace. Apprentices will need to work in a suitable job role that meets the requirements of the apprenticeship standard, and be able to put learning in to practice. Rural Surveyors provide professional advice and recommendations to clients relating to land, property or construction, manage client instructions from engagement to completion, liaise with other professionals, negotiate contracts and prices. They also follow due diligence in providing advice to clients, undertake detailed inspections of assets such as buildings, land, or construction and analyse information or data from inspections or visits to buildings, land and construction sites. Funding - An apprentice is employed and salaried by a company for the duration of their apprenticeship, working a minimum of 30 hours per week. The company will pay for the cost of their apprenticeship via Government funding or co-investment. There are no tuition fees to pay and apprentices are not eligible for student loans. Many employers will also cover accommodation costs for on campus teaching weeks. Career progression – Chartered Surveyors may work for the public or private sector and could be involved in a wide range of specialised rural projects. These may include high value machinery auctions, large construction projects, land sales, change of property use negotiations, asset valuations, tidal defence projects, valuation advice in relation to a range of land and property types, management of large rural estates, representing clients affected by major infrastructure projects, delivering farm business advice, providing legal advice to land owners and assessing the impact of capital taxation on land and property assets.
