RAB Recognised as Approved Employer & Trainer for the Institution of Civil Engineers

In recognition of a commitment to the highest standards in civil engineering employment, the Institution of Civil Engineers (ICE) has unveiled a new logo reserved exclusively for Approved Employers.

RAB are proud to be an Approved ICE Employer and deliver the ICE Training Scheme, which provides structured learning and professional development support for candidates working towards professional qualification.

The ICE Training Scheme helps trainees:

  • Acquire engineering knowledge, experience and competence, by providing opportunities to find and implement solutions to engineering problems.
  • Achieve the ICE Member attributes and complete the IPD stage required for professional qualification.
  • Record how they’ve gained relevant knowledge, to support their application for the Professional Review/End Point Assessment for apprenticeships.
  • Receive structured guidance and supervision from an SCE and the ICE Membership Recruitment Team so they can make the most of their training and, ultimately, achieve professional qualification quicker.

To be an Approved Employer to operate the ICE Training scheme we have committed to provide practical training in accordance with the ICE requirements. Our Supervising Civil Engineer ensures each trainee has a training structure to achieve and monitor progress against nine key attributes including an initial assessment meeting, regular development reviews, a formal annual review of progress and plans, and confirmation of completion.

After completing the Training Agreement, trainees may then apply for a Professional Review or End Point Assessment to become a Member of ICE (MICE) and to register as a Chartered (CEng) or Incorporated Engineer (IEng). Our ICE Training Scheme is one element of the RAB Academy, which encompasses our approach to the development of all our staff.

More information on the RAB Academy and our training can be found on the Careers Page of our website. Current employment opportunities are also shown, which include vacancies for an Assistant Property Flood Resilience Surveyor (two roles), a Flood Asset Inspector and Public Safety Risk Assessor, and a Graduate/Assistant Civil Engineer.
