Senior Infrastructure Engineer, Viren Lad, recently passed his End Point Assessment with the Institution of Civil Engineers (ICE) making him an Incorporated Engineer (IEng).
The End Point assessment (EPA) is the final stage of an apprenticeship that assesses the knowledge, skills and behaviours learnt throughout the apprenticeship and tests an individual on their ability to apply them in the workplace. Viren has demonstrated the required professional competencies and commitment throughout his training and in his role as Senior Engineer at SCP.
Here at SCP, we believe the training and development at all stages and in Viren’s case through his apprenticeship. SCP have supported Viren and other apprentices from Level 3 through to Level 6, allowing them the freedom to learn while they earn. Our senior staff take on the role of mentors to apprentices, imparting their knowledge and skills through on-the-job training.
Viren sought mentorship from his leaders in the infrastructure team, including Paul Turton, Technical Director and, Steve Carmody, Managing Director. Both of these have supported Viren since his early career as a Level 3 apprentice, our mentors are great contributors to assisting and supporting our staff from start to finish.
Upon receiving the news of his recent achievement Viren commented, “I’m very pleased to have gained my IEng status through the End Point assessment and I’m extremely appreciative of all the support and training I have received while working at SCP.”
Steven Carmody, Managing Director said “I’m very happy for Viren and it is great to see the Apprentice Civil Engineering route working within SCP. This is a great example of employee, employer and education provider (Leeds Beckett University) collaborating to bring forward the future of our industry.”
Viren will continue his growth in the team and naturally become a mentor for the other apprentices, guiding them in their pursuit towards their academic and professional qualifications.
