An apprenticeship is a work-based training programme that provides you with practical skills through on-the-job training combined with theoretical knowledge through off-the-job learning. An apprenticeship will give you the best of both worlds, learning and working, enabling you to earn money whilst gaining qualifications and experience.
Two routes available:
Performing Engineering Operations
Performing Manufacturing Operations

The selection process will include a basic Initial Assessment and an in depth interview during which your suitability, commitment and interest for the programme will be determined.
To be accepted onto the programme you must have GCSE grades E or above in Maths and English. Grade C or above are desirable. If you have attained these grades it may give you an exemption from the functional skills components of the framework, however if you do not have the required grades, additional support will be provided to bring you up to the required level dependant on your initial assessment results.
The suitability of your employer will also be determined before you are accepted onto the programme. Your employer will need to demonstrate that they have the necessary Health and Safety arrangements in place to satisfy legislative requirements, and that they are able to provide you with the full range of work to successfully complete the Apprenticeship framework.
