This useful one day training course has been specifically developed to help the SCE/DE understand what they are expected to do, appreciate the ICE framework in which they are to operate, and ensure they supervise and mentor graduate civil engineers in a consistent and effective way.

The Supervising Civil Engineer is key to making training and development as efficient and effective as possible within their organisation. Together with the Delegated Engineer they provide clear mentoring and guidance to graduate civil engineers progressing towards professional membership of the ICE.

This intensive course looks specifically at how to make mentoring work effectively in practice. The course is interactive and makes frequent use of real examples set within the context of the ICE framework.



Training courses on set dates, in ICE Training venues across the country. Suitable for those looking to attend a training course and share knowledge and practical experiences with like-minded others in an interactive learning environment.


Bespoke training programmes. These are delivered by our tutors at a time, in a location and based on a curriculum completely tailored to your needs. Ideal for organisations that have several employees wishing to take training in the same subject area, and/or have organisation-specific ideas for learning and development.
