Celebrating National Apprenticeship Week at chapmanbdsp

As part of National Apprenticeship Week, we are celebrating the next generation of engineers who are currently training with us on our accredited graduate and apprenticeship scheme. 

George Mackie, an Intermediate Electrical Engineer, said: “I came to chapmanbdsp in September 2021 and enjoy the problem-solving aspect of engineering, whilst providing clients with the best engineering solutions.

"I’m now in the final year of my degree apprenticeship and looking forward to graduating with a BEng in Building Services Engineering and enrolling on to a Masters.

"This will take me in to 10+ years of further education, and chapmanbdsp have supported me through my degree with their CIBSE (Chartered Institute of Building Services Engineers) accredited training and development plan, of which I plan to use towards getting chartership."

Darecy Valler, Apprentice Graphic Designer, said: “At chapmanbdsp I hope to develop my graphic skills through going on courses and working with new people and software. I also want to achieve my BSc Hons degree in digital marketing from London Southbank University and hope to learn more about building services and its sustainability aspects.”

Conor Brown, Apprentice Mechanical Engineer, added: “Before my employment here, I studied maths, biology, business studies and finance. Maths and biology particularly gave me an insight to engineering, allowing me to develop my skills further and help me pursue a career in building services engineering.

"The people in my team, as well as the rest of the company, bring out the best work possible in me, helping me through any challenges I may face, allowing me to become a more independent engineer in the future.”

Apprentice Mechanical and Public Health engineer, Alex Watson, said: “My favourite thing about working here is the patience shown by the company to enable you to develop.

"It’s been very important for me and has improved me as a person. Another thing is that while the apprenticeship scheme is challenging, because it involves full time work with studying, people at work are really understanding and supportive.”

The Talent and Leadership Group at chapmanbdsp, which oversees our next generation offer and ensures it aligns with our core values, added: "As a company operating in a highly competitive skills-driven market, we are always looking to attract and encourage new talent.

"We do not want to just develop competent engineers and environmental consultants; we want to develop some of the most innovative talent in the industry. We believe that employing apprentices is a very effective way to grow talent and develop a motivated, skilled, and qualified workforce within chapmanbdsp.”
