Higher and degree apprenticeships - Wates


Join Our Apprenticeship Trainee Programme.

If you don’t have a Degree, but would like to gain practical experience with us, you could join our Apprenticeship Trainee Programme, where we’ll teach you all the technical and professional skills you need to succeed.

Your journey will begin on a Level 4 construction-related qualification, designed to give you the technical knowledge required to succeed.  From there, you will have the opportunity to be enrolled on a Degree Apprenticeship, and once complete, you will have the opportunity to progress onto Chartership.

To be eligible, you’ll need to have achieved GCSEs grade 4/C or above in both Maths and English.  As well as a minimum of 2 A Levels, or equivalent, (e.g., Level 3 College qualification, T-Level etc.), at grades DD or above.

Benefits include:

  • Competitive salary
  • Private medical insurance
  • Employer pension contribution
  • Car allowance or company car
  • Health & wellness programme
  • 26 days holiday + bank holidays
  • Industry leading family leave policies
  • Volunteering days
