View our live apprenticeship job vacancies

The Level 4 Construction Site Engineering Technician Standard is designed to create highly skilled employees who can contribute to the success of complex construction projects by demonstrating skills, knowledge and behaviours in key aspects of construction engineering and the co-ordination of site activities as well as contributing to wider project objectives.

Site engineering technicians will be working on construction sites and as well as being able to deliver their own technical responsibilities they will also need to supervise and co-ordinate a workforce involved in the delivery of trades activities and ensure their safety and the safety of others. There will also be some liaison with third parties such as design teams, clients and statutory authorities.

Due to the technical nature of the role it is essential that apprentices are educated and trained to a level and breadth that exceeds that of the trades-based workforce that they are supervising and coordinating and that they achieve a level of professional membership with the appropriate professional body to demonstrate their acquisition of the skills, knowledge and behaviour required by the apprenticeship.
Successful completion of the Apprenticeship Standard demonstrates that the apprentice has the skills, knowledge and behaviours to work competently as a Construction Site Engineering Technician.
