How Sir Robert McAlpine will help students at the UTC

    • UTC students can apply for work experience on one of our many projects.
    • We’ll give them the experience they need to develop their skills and take their careers forward.
    • They’ll have the chance to make a genuine contribution.

All while learning from our highly skilled teams.


  • We offer a range of apprenticeship opportunities in areas including joinery and bricklaying to general construction operations, scaffolding and rigging, plant maintenance and electrical installations.
  • We offer day release study opportunities at local colleges to those who want to blend construction experience with their higher education.
  • We sponsor undergraduates who have a strong academic base and demonstrate real potential. They are offered financial and technical support during their studies, as well as vacation/IT employment.
