Kickstart your career in industry

Apprenticeships explained

An apprenticeship is a real job where you earn, learn and gain invaluable experience, giving you that competitive edge for future jobs. 

They enable you to work alongside experienced staff in addition to your studies (usually one day a week) and earn a wage at the same time. Upon completion of your apprenticeship you’ll have a recognised qualification, and the essential skills and experience employers want. 

Why choose an apprenticeship

Earn a wage

Gain a recognised qualification

Receive hands-on training

Learn job specific skills

Progression onto an apprenticeship

Any leaners interested in progressing onto an apprenticeship are encouraged to apply to a fulltime study programme in their chosen specialism.

Throughout the year, when an employer requests an intake of apprentices, we open these opportunities to our full-time learners to apply. If they are successful, they can transfer onto the apprenticeship and continue to complete their qualification on a day release basis, whilst also gaining skills with their new employer.

We offer Level 3 Apprenticeships in many Engineering specialisms. These include:

  • Maintenance and Operations Engineering Technician Apprenticeship
  • Laboratory Technician Apprenticeship
  • Science Industry Maintenance Technician Apprenticeship
  • Science Manufacturing Technician Apprenticeship
