Architecture Apprenticeship Handbook

Daniel Goodricke, Luke Murray

Research output: Book/ReportBookpeer-review


The Architecture Apprenticeship Handbook demystifies the Level 7 apprenticeship, providing structured guidance and advice for career progress to apprentices, as well as those supporting them on their journey.

As a new route into the profession, it answers likely questions such as: what is an architecture apprenticeship and is it right for me?; how do I apply and prepare for an apprenticeship?; how can I make the most of my apprenticeship?; and how can an apprenticeship support my future career ambitions?

Featuring case studies from recent graduates and current apprentices who have excelled through this route, it includes original research drawn from the experience of employers and academics delivering architecture apprenticeship programmes in the UK.

The handbook is published by RIBA Publishing - the leading global publisher of architecture books - highly illustrated and beautifully designed by Unlimited ( It is available as both a printed book and ebook, and is widely available through RIBA Books and all good booksellers (e.g. Amazon, Waterstones, etc.).

The handbook was subject to high editorial standards with both the initial proposal and developed manuscript being peer reviewed by industry and academic colleagues, and even apprentices themselves.

Select ideas from the handbook have disseminated through RIBA Academy, events, podcasts and short-form articles.

The handbook was generously sponsored by leading practices, FaulknerBrowns Architects, Foster + Partners, Hawkins\Brown, HLM Architects, Ryder, SPACE Architects and Assael, helping to keep it affordable for learners. The authors were instrumental in securing this financial support.
