Wakemans Graduates are First Class!

Wakemans Graduates are First Class!

We’re delighted to report that Wakemans trainees Charlie and Tom have graduated from Birmingham City University with first class BSc Hons degrees in Quantity Surveying.

Like many before them, Charlie and Tom joined the firm after completing their A-Level studies and were keen to sign up to our work/study programme. Offering talented young professionals the opportunity to combine relevant on the job training with quality tuition delivered by the University, our training initiative is proven as a stepping stone to a successful career in the construction industry.

Lauren is the latest Wakemans trainee and is also benefiting from our ‘earn-while-you-learn’ approach to staff development. The training is organised such that young people can earn a living and develop key skills in a genuine construction role whilst simultaneously studying for a professional qualification recognised by the RICS.

At the end of the five-year quantity surveying or building surveying degree course our graduates are ready to excel in a secure, full-time job with excellent prospects. We pay all tuition fees so they don’t have to worry about student debt.

Our commitment to helping our employees achieve their full potential is reciprocated, since the vast majority of graduates from the scheme choose to develop their careers with Wakemans.

Through this flexible approach to training we’re also able to play a small part in promoting construction as a career and addressing the industry’s skills gap.
