Sponsored degree programme for school leavers

It’s a three-year course that givers candidates a comprehensive overview of housebuilding: the skills involved, housebuilding quality, project management, health and safety, business skills, negotiation skills – right through to aspects of law, mathematics and economics.

Over the three years, every student completes six modules every year. The degree is fully accredited by Liverpool John Moores University.

It’s the perfect ‘next step’ for people who have received a strong set of A Level results and want a career in the industry, or for those people with a background in construction who are looking for further qualifications. It’s not an easy option, but it’s definitely a worthwhile one.

But don’t just take our word for it, ask students who have taken – or are taking - the course what they think – tweet @Redrowplc, using #RedrowDegree

I joined Redrow just over three years ago and it is strange to think that before then I wasn’t aware of the opportunities available within the construction industry, let alone that I’d now be in my final year of Redrow’s housebuilding degree and managing three of my own sites from a technical perspective.

I am so pleased I decided to enrol onto the degree. When I joined the company I was very new to the industry but over the last three years, thanks to the degree and really supportive teams, I have learned so much about all of the different skills and departments at Redrow. What I have learned through the degree has been invaluable in helping me progress in my career.”

My journey with Redrow began in March 2019 when, after some months’ job hunting, I spotted the opportunity to become a Trainee Quantity Surveyor for Redrow’s East Midlands region. I jumped at the chance! I’d always had a passion for construction, since my family have been in the housebuilding industry for as long as I can remember.

"My daily responsibilities include maintaining subcontractor relationships, orders and payments, analysing business costs and keeping a site running within budget. I am currently working on my Redrow Construction Management (Housebuilding) degree, which enables me to acquire a wider industry knowledge whilst gaining on-the-job experience.  The opportunities I’ve been given since joining Redrow have been amazing, including attending business conferences, joining the Redrow Ambassador Scheme, and inspiring the next generation. I would definitely recommend Redrow to anyone interested - I’m so glad I joined and can’t wait to carry on progressing in my career!”
