Transport Planning Apprenticeship

Transport Planning Apprenticeships have opened up access to the profession, improved the career prospects for school leavers and decreased the skills shortages within the sector. CIHT was involved in developing the Level 3 Transport Planning Technician Apprenticeship from the outset and we will continue to work with government and other parts of the transportation sector to ensure we increase the pathways and routes for apprentices to enter and grow their careers within our profession.

CIHT believe progression routes are very important, which is why we actively supported the development of the Level 6 Transport Planning Degree Apprenticeship which launched in September 2019.

The level 3 Transport Planning Apprenticeship is a gateway into the level 6.

CIHT has now been recognised by Ofqual to deliver the revised version of the level 3 Transport Planning Technician Apprenticeship. All apprentices sitting their EPA in 2022 and beyond, will be assessed under the resized standard.

Update

End Point Assessment (EPA) Interviews

CIHT are continuing to deliver remote EPA interviews to ensure apprentices can safely complete their EPA.

The next round of remote EPA interviews are scheduled for October 2022. Remote EPA interview guidance will be shared with eligible apprentices and their employers prior to their interview.

For Apprentices taking part

We recommend that apprentices due to take the EPA familiarise themselves with Microsoft Teams and practice how to share their screens with their line manager (or each other), which they will need to do when talking the interviewers through their presentations.

Apprentices should also use the time leading up to their EPA to review their plans, proposals and presentations.

Further information

All eligible apprentices will shortly be contacted to arrange interview dates, but please feel free to contact professionaldevelopment@ciht.org.uk with any queries in the interim.

Apprentice Testimonials

“I have been a Transport Planning Technician Apprentice and a member of CIHT for over three years. I completed and passed my Level 3 apprenticeship and have moved on to the Level 6 integrated degree apprenticeship. Looking back, I realise that CIHT has been such an important catalyst to my professional development and I have been encouraged by both CIHT and my employer to succeed. By offering networking opportunities, CPD events and award evenings, CIHT has given me an opportunity to meet some incredible like-minded people, who are passionate about sharing their knowledge and experiences. I was even shortlisted for CIHT’s Apprentice of the Year Award and invited to present at their annual conference. I would encourage anybody to join CIHT in order to take advantage of the great benefits they offer.”

Joel Shevlin EngTech, MCIHT

Both this Apprenticeship and CIHT has lined me up for a successful career, boosted my confidence and given me the ability to become a future leader within a fast paced and ever changing sector. I was even shortlisted for the CIHT Apprentice of the Year Award. CIHT continues to provide me with continuous professional development opportunities to network with others within the industry, on a national and local basis, such as at the Young Professional Conference, seminars and social events.”
