Who should attend this webinar?
This webinar should appeal to all Built Environment educators who are developing Quantity Surveying Degree Apprenticeships (DA) scheme curricula that prepares ‘industry-ready’ Quantity Surveying graduates with a more effective and efficient work-based learning (WBL) mode.
This research project is investigating the perceptions of Quantity Surveying (QS) Degree Apprentices, their tutors, and managers about the WBL mode and corroborates the preliminary findings with the existing WBL model used in the UK, to propose changes in the apprenticeship course curriculum.
The webinar aims to:
- Investigate the perceptions of different parties involved in DA framework about its suitability, effectiveness, successes, and failures.
- Discuss the preliminary findings of the SIG project.
