CIHT Launches Apprentice Grade of Membership
CIHT is pleased to support National Apprenticeship Week by launching a brand new grade of membership.

The new Apprentice Membership Grade is suitable for all apprentices who have embarked on a career in highways and transportation.
 
Transport is part of everyone’s lives; it connects communities and supports the economy. The highways and transportation industry offers an interesting and exciting range of opportunities for apprentices to get involved in all aspects of the building, maintenance, operation, design and planning of transport networks.
 
Sue Percy, CIHT Chief Executive said:
 
“We are delighted to add the Apprentices Grade into our membership offer. This is an important step for CIHT as we have been working with government and our sector to highlight the role that apprentices will play now and in the future for the UK.”
 
“Apprenticeships are a great way to learn new skills, gain valuable work experience and become qualified all whilst earning a wage. National Apprenticeship Week provides an opportunity for us to highlight all those involved in promoting and supporting this great initiative”.
 
To take advantage of the experience and support of highways and transportation professionals, engage with CIHT locally through the Young Professionals groups in its regional branches, and attend technical and social events to develop your knowledge and build your network of contacts, go to: www.ciht.org.uk/Apprentice or contact the Membership Team: membership@ciht.org.uk or 020 7336 1571.
