CSTT Programme

Level 3 Diploma Apprenticeship
Surveying Technician
Two year apprenticeship
Diploma in Surveying Technician

The programme is blended in its approach, effectively using the online content as the knowledge and content store with a mixture of online activities based on our Virtual Learning Environment (VLE). The VLE study is complemented by monthly full day workshop sessions. These workshop sessions create the opportunity to apply the concepts, theories and models, and engage creatively in the subject matter.
The delivery is broken up into eight stages, six of which are paired against specific learning outcomes.
Students will be assessed by a mixture of Computer Marked Assessments online and the production of portfolios of evidence. In the first year, utilising problem based approaches; students will work on a single project to enable them to meet the portfolio assessment requirements for the three units.
The apprentice will be undertaking the Diploma in Surveying Technician – the technical part of the apprenticeship.
The competency part of the apprenticeship will be to gain their Associate member status with RICS. Apprentices will be allocated an assessor to coach, mentor and guide them through the process. The submission of the Associate would be in the summer of their second year.
