Apprenticeship Schemes

What is a Baker Perkins Manufacturing Apprenticeship?
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 level 3 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.

You will immediately start a 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.

Apprenticeships have been offered in the past in:

  • Electrical & Mechanical Fitting
  • Machining
  • Fabrication

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 4/C or above.

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.
