University College of Estate Management (UCEM) Principal, Ashley Wheaton reflects on personnel changes in government and makes the case for apprenticeships to remain high on the current leadership’s agenda:
University College of Estate Management (UCEM) is the only organisation selected to provide apprenticeships in surveying for the Crown Commercial Service (CCS), as part of a £360m framework to train the next generation of civil servants.
UCEM, (leading provider of supported online learning for the Built Environment) and CSTT (an educational charity providing life-changing opportunities for people to enter the surveying profession) today unveiled their plans to expand their apprenticeship services to meet the growing demands from employers in response to the arrival of the Apprenticeship Levy. The two organisations, which already have a strong working relationship, will come together in a formal partnership to deliver a best in class single point of delivery apprenticeship package for learners at both level 3 and level 6 (degree level).
