I’m doing a Higher Level Apprenticeship in Civil Engineering with martin & hamilton. I have completed my Foundation degree and am currently completing my Civil Engineering degree. I really enjoy the HLA pathway as it allows me to gain ‘hands on’ practical experience working on projects on site while getting a degree. Seeing the classroom theory delivered on real projects as I learn and playing my part in it has been both useful and rewarding.
