What is a graduate training scheme?

Graduate training schemes can take different formats depending on which house builder you choose to apply to. Usually though, they allow university graduates to experience aspects of both the specific role that interests them and the business as a whole.

The schemes vary in length depending on the specific employer programme. And like apprenticeships, graduate training schemes offer you the opportunity to earn while you learn, all the while gaining vital workplace skills and experience.

There are limited number of spaces available on any graduate training scheme, so employers set minimum requirements to qualify for entry. Usually these will be a set criteria such as a certain number of UCAS points, a specific minimum degree grading, and sometimes relevant industry experience through voluntary work placements.
