Apprenticeship Schemes

  • Manufacturing & Technical (Design) 2017

    We regularly look for Manufacturing Apprentices to follow a four year course of practical training and further education, leading to qualified engineer status and NVQ level 3; and Technical (Design) Apprentices to follow similar initial training and then design-specific training and further education. 

    Our well-established and proven engineering training schemes have set the standard for many years.

    We offer successful applicants a comprehensive and carefully tailored training programme to become a qualified engineer. You will follow a highly practical training programme leading to NVQ level 3 standard and essential further education qualifications.

    • It is a real job with a real employer.
    • The training programme will last approx. four years.
    • It enables you to work alongside experienced engineers and to gain workplace and business experience and a recognised qualification.

    Apprentices immediately start a SEMTA Performing Engineering Operations course at a local college, and then continue throughout your apprenticeship to achieve relevant further education qualifications on a day release basis. Salary is reviewed regularly throughout the apprenticeship to reflect progress against the objectives of each phase of training.

    What do we look for?

    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 expect a minimum of 4 GCSEs (or equivalent) including English, Maths and Science, at grade C or above.

    We don't just look 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.

    How to apply:

    There are several stages to our process and you have to pass each stage to move to the next:

    Application form, CV and covering letter
    First stage of selection – Written tests to assess your natural aptitude and ability to succeed in engineering
    Second stage of selection – Practical tests
    Final stage of selection – Interviews
