    • Leading to potential roles in Manufacturing as mechanical fitter, electrician, fabricator, machinist or machine maintenance engineer.
    • We offer successful applicants a comprehensive and carefully tailored training programme to become a qualified engineer. 
    • Throughout your four year apprenticeship you will follow a highly practical training programme leading to NVQ level 3 standard and essential level 3 technical certificate.

    For the majority of your apprenticeship, you will work alongside an experienced engineer in a small friendly team environment gaining a variety of interesting work experience. 

    You will immediately start a Performing Engineering Operations course at a local college, and then continue throughout your apprenticeship to achieve a relevant technical certificate on a day release basis.

    Selection criteria

    Our selection criteria are a combination of a genuine interest in engineering, self-motivation and a determination to succeed. Other important qualities are good communication skills and the ability to contribute to the work of a team. 

    In terms of academic qualifications, we prefer a minimum of 4 GCSEs (or equivalent) including English, Mathematics and Science/Technology subjects, at grade C/4 or above, although this is not essential. However you must be able to work at this academic level to achieve your apprenticeship. Therefore, if you do not have the required GCSE grades you will be required to do some extra work in your apprenticeship to demonstrate that you are able to work at this level. You can also have predicted grades only when you apply.

    We are not just looking for school leavers. We are also interested in applicants who are already in the first year of an apprenticeship, or have other relevant work experience or qualifications.

    Please send us your CV accompanied by a letter explaining why you would like to become an apprentice, what interests you about a career in engineering and what engineering experience you have (including hobbies). Please provide your full contact details - postal address as well as email and telephone.

    Please return your application to us by no later than Thursday 28th February 2019, so that we can include you in our selection process.

    Selection process and timetable

    If your CV and letter are satisfactory, you will be invited to attend the first stage, practical tests, within the week of 11th March 2019. If you are successful at this stage, you will be invited back for a final stage, interviews, within the weeks of 25th March or 1st April 2019. Further details of each stage will be confirmed separately at the appropriate time, but please make a note of these dates now.
