Responsibilities

Advanced Engineering Craft Apprenticeships generally between 42 - 48 months to complete. During the period of the apprenticeship, apprentices learn appropriate skills and gain a strong grounding in engineering practices – using tools to carry out a range of tasks, operating safely in the workplace and working on complex products in our manufacturing functions.

What Does The Apprenticeship Involve?

  • You’ll spend the first year in full time learning developing core skills before moving into your trade disciple, such as Mechanical Fitter, Electrician and Machinist

Future Prospects

A great job after completion. Around 95% of our apprentices choose to stay with us and go on to have really successful careers. You can choose to go for promotion and progression or continue learning in the role you’ve moved into.

When you successfully complete your apprenticeship, we will help you to move into a suitable role, subject to the requirements of the business.

Reality Check

Apprentices are paid for their normal working hours and training that's part of their apprenticeship (usually one day per week).
