Visit our Apprenticeship home page to see apprentice jobs available.

The Advanced Quantity Surveyor Apprenticeship is open to all Quantity Surveying and related companies within Ireland. The company must have direct involvement in Quantity Surveying to allow the apprentice to achieve the learning outcomes of the programme. Apprentices can be appointed from within an employer’s existing workforce or can be recruited as a new resource.

The company must get approval to train apprentices. To do this companies must demonstrate that you have the capacity and the ability to provide quality, relevant on-the-job training to apprentices. You must also allow the apprentice to attend all classroom / online learning days and these days count as workdays.

If you have questions, please contact the SCSI team at or get in touch with us online.
