As an engineering apprentice, you will have the opportunity to develop mechanical, electrical, instrumentation, control & automation skills.

Achieve your career goals on our apprentice programme

You’ll receive tailored on-the-job training, combined with early responsibility to help you develop and progress. You’ll be working towards nationally recognised qualifications. We consider your entry qualifications and will support the next level of academic study (which may be HNC or above).

Working with both your manager and programme manager we want to identify the right opportunities to help you succeed in the short term and throughout your career with us. You will also be assigned a buddy or a mentor who will be there to offer support and guidance throughout your apprenticeship.
