We support a wide range of trade apprenticeships, which is a way of learning a NVQ construction skill at college whilst gaining supervised work experience at the same time.
We also work in partnership with specialist apprentice organisations, Cyfle (for projects in West Wales) and Y-Prentis (for projects in East Wales), who help us link their registered apprentices to work placement opportunities with our on-site specialist contractors.
Some of our best project managers began their working life as apprentices with us, and have now progressed through the ranks to senior positions, running their own construction projects.

Construction of a 200m inland Surf Lake using ground-breaking Wavegarden cove technology – the first of its kind in the UK. This exciting facility will generate up to 1,000 quality waves per hours, ranging from 50cm (1.7ft) to almost 2m (6.5ft) in height.
The new build also includes an education centre for schools and colleges, a café and bar, a surf shop. There’s also external works for landscaped gardens and car parks
I feel that the amount I have learnt during my placement with Andrew Scott Ltd is my greatest achievement. It has provided me with a level of experience that far surpasses many of my peers from my University course and it’s what sets me apart from them
We offer work experience placements in our offices and on our construction sites, to students who are undertaking university courses which will lead to a professional career in construction.
Professional careers include:
- Engineering (Civil and Building)
- Quantity Surveying
Placements are available during holiday periods and for those who require a year-in-industry as part of a sandwich course.
Darcie is a Civil Engineering graduate studying at Swansea University, and undertook her ‘Year-in-Industry’, assisting our in-house Design team and on-site team successfully constructed an industrial building in Newport.
I have thoroughly enjoyed every minute of working with such a dedicated, friendly team of professionals and on completion of my MEng Masters, it would be lovely to start my professional career with Andrew Scott.
