TAC shares update from only Level 3 apprenticeship in Transport Planning

Leeds College of Building (LCB) are pleased to announce that since the development of the country’s first and only Level 3 apprenticeship in Transport Planning in 2016, the first cohort of learners have come to the end of their programme and have completed their End Point Assessments with the Chartered Institute of Highways Transportation (CIHT).

With over 100 Transport Planning apprentices on programme at LCB, from a wide range of employers nationally, we have had numerous successes throughout the programme including winning CIHT’s Apprentice of the Year Award 2018, First and second place awards in ITS-UK’s national essay competitions, course tutor Joanna Elvy awarded BTEC Tutor of the Year; Bronze Certificate and the college being awarded BTEC Apprenticeship Provider of the Year 2018.

Our most recent success however has been the completion of the Apprenticeship for the first 14 of the original cohort of leaners.  Having already achieved both their Level 3 Diploma and Level 3 Skills Standard qualifications, these learners have now completed their 30 hours industry specific project on which they sat professional interviews.

We would like to congratulate the learners who have successfully completed their EPA who come from the following organisations: AECOM, Atkins, ArupCurtins, Mott MacDonald, SystraTransport for LondonWakefield District Council and WSP in the UK

We congratulate all of the apprentices involved and thank their employers for their 3 years of support, as well as CIHT for the smooth and professional implementation of the EPA process for Transport Planners entering the industry as EngTech qualified Transport Planning Technicians.

Further applications for EPA are currently being made by apprentices from AECOM, Arup, Curtins, GTA Civils, Leeds City Council, Mott MacDonald, and WSP in the UK.
