BREEAM Approved Graduate (AG)

BREEAM Approved Graduate (AG) programme - Add value for your students

Many university courses deliver training on the built environment (eg architecture, master planning, construction etc) and wish to feature a more thorough and practical guide to sustainability. 

BREEAM is a leading environmental assessment method – which sets the standard for best practice in sustainable building design, construction and operation. It has become one of the most comprehensive and widely recognised measures of environmental performance. 

BREEAM AG has been designed to meet curriculum sustainability objectives and compliment an existing academic programme, for both undergraduates and postgraduates.

How does it work?

A university can purchase a membership enabling the use of the BREEAM AG content on any number of programmes in your university for one academic year.  

This content can be embedded as an integral part of your existing university course, or delivered as a bolt-on – giving lecturers flexibility to tailor the material to suit a broad range of needs.

Why should you adopt BREEAM AG?

It allows universities to connect with the leading industry-used sustainability assessment for both the UK and international markets. 

Your university will also receive a digital badge of recognition to demonstrate this membership, which can be used within marketing. 

Lecturers will have the option to attend a lecturer training day, where they will personally receive CPD credits towards their own professional development whilst learning how best to deliver this content. 

This enables you to offer students:

  • Formal recognition of competence
  • Improve employability prospects for students with a listing on Green Book Live
  • Robust content direct from BRE, the home of BREEAM – your link with industry
  • Industry news and social networking groups

What does being a BREEAM AG mean?

BREEAM AG’s will gain a foundation in the drivers and challenges for sustainability within the built environment. They will learn how common challenges within industry are addressed to meet sustainability requirements, from master planning, new construction and international perspectives.  

After passing the BREEAM AG exam and assignments, graduates will be eligible to receive a 50% discount on their first BREEAM training with the BRE Academy*. Students will also receive graduate membership of the BRE Academy free for one year.

The CPD certificate can be shown to prospective employers and the badge of recognition placed on your CV/online marketing (such as LinkedIn). As your career progresses, you will be in an ideal position to transition to the full BREEAM Assessor qualifications. 

For organisations hiring, a BREEAM AG will have a strong grounding in sustainability drivers and issues – specific to the built environment. In addition to this, a BREEAM AG has been tested specifically around the technical aspects of BREEAM and its application, making them an excellent choice for organisations who construct sustainably. 

*Please note, this discount cannot be used in conjunction with any other offer.
