The presidents’ apprentices and Future Leaders have delivered on a wide range of initiatives for ICE and the profession since the scheme was first set up.
President Gordon Masterton launched the President's Apprentice scheme in 2005. Looking back in 2017, he commented: "when we started the scheme, one of the great attractions to me was that it was a bit edgy, a bit radical, to have a group of young people placed so close to the President, with influence". That edge remains and successive Presidents have brought in their own apprentices to help them during their year in office.
Professor Lord Robert Mair rebadged the scheme "President's Future Leaders" in 2017 to recognise their long-term potential – with the scheme's energy and vitality continuing as before.
Robert’s Future Leaders worked on a series of strategic projects, which were aligned to the ICE Business Plan.
Here’s their video explaining the highlights of the year and what the scheme meant to them.
Tim’s apprentices worked on a series of strategic projects.

Sir John's apprentices worked on a series of strategic projects, which were aligned to the ICE Business Plan. Watch their video.
David asked his apprentices to assess the state of innovation within the construction industry and to explore how it could be improved. Their findings can be found in their "Step up the industry" report.
Geoff's apprentices focussed on inspiring the next generation of engineers. One of their initiatives was a video competition for members and the public to say why "I love civil engineering". The results can be viewed on the ICE YouTube channel.
Barry's apprentices researched members' experience of dealing with ethical issues in their working lives and in response developed an ethics toolkit for practising civil engineers.
Richard's apprentices created the ICE photo competition. The competition still runs today and has helped ICE build-up a large portfolio of images to promote civil engineering.
In the year preceding the 2012 London Olympics, Peter's apprentices helped deliver the Create Sport Challenge, a national competition where school students and teachers designed and built a model of a Community Sports Venue.
Paul's apprentices designed the international development toolkit, which maps out appropriate responses to challenges faced in international development across the infrastructure delivery cycle.
Jean's apprentices supported the delivery of her core themes - climate change and sustainability - and to promote engineering to local communities.
David's apprentices helped deliver on his presidential themes: unsung heroes, professionalism, procurement excellent and the value of civil engineering.
Quentin's apprentices – from every UK region - helped ICE celebrate Thomas Telford's 250th birthday. They also developed a game for primary schools, based on the film "Flushed Away", to teach children about civil engineering.
The original president’s apprentices! Gordon and with his apprentices demonstrated the value of mentoring by senior members to pass on the baton on to younger members in a structured manner.
