This Architecture Apprenticeship (RIBA 2 and 3) course from London Metropolitan University is designed to enable architecture practices to retain talented apprentices, so they may continue to work four days a week in the office whilst studying our Architecture (RIBA 2) - MArch and Examination in Professional Practice (RIBA 3) - PG Cert courses on a part-time basis. Over their four-year postgraduate journey to fully-qualified status as an architect, the apprentice will progress through a combination of work-based training and university study.
The course will include the development of designs and design strategies with regards to wider urban and landscape concerns in central London and beyond. These designs will address the integration of social, cultural and economic as well as environmental and sustainable concerns, preparing apprentices for their futures as architects working in the profession and other parts of the construction industry, both locally and internationally. Apprentices will learn to work collaboratively and collectively and be able to critically analyse a given situation in order to contribute to appropriate solutions.
Apprenticeships are a fantastic way to start or enhance a career – they allow the apprentice to be employed and to be paid, whilst learning and gaining a qualification in their chosen occupational area. If you're an employer, apprenticeships can also help enhance your business by utilising your levy to recruit an apprentice who can have a positive impact on your organisation.
