Neil Weller MBE BSc (Hons) CEng FCIBSE FIHEEM

Chair of the London Apprenticeship Ambassador Network, Consultant to Engineering Consultancy Firm Troup Bywaters + Anders and Chair of the Building Services Level 3, 4 and 6 Trailblazer Groups.

In 2017, Neil Weller became Chair of the London Apprenticeship Ambassador Network, and he continuously encourages other businesses to join and grow their apprentice intake. He has a particular ambition to expand the London network so that even more young people get the opportunity to become apprentices as he did when he started his career.

Neil was the Managing Partner for TB+A up to 2015, expanding the practice nationally during his tenure. He formalised their apprenticeship scheme in 2010 and subsequently acted as the lead employer to develop approved, Level 3 and Level 6 Building Services Design Trailblazers; whilst simultaneously setting bespoke college courses which historically had not met his company’s needs.

The practice’s apprenticeship scheme has won numerous awards and their apprentices have also been recognised individually for their outstanding achievements. Separately, TB+A are an IiP Platinum Champion employer guiding other organisations to deliver best practice in People Management and hold the coveted Princess Royal Training Award.

Neil has been heavily involved in this process and the development of their apprenticeship programmes, whilst also being a part of numerous other external steering groups such as the national Technical Apprenticeship Consortium (TAC), CIBSE & BESA Education Committees, City & Guilds - Employer Industry Board Construction/BSE T-Level, Construction Industry Council (CIC): Education and Skills Taskforce Apprenticeships and Skills Reference Group, Construction & Built Environment Education Advisory Committee
