Engineering is a thriving industry with over 1.7 million people employed in the UK. There are a huge number of jobs available within the engineering industry which provides opportunities for entry level positions all the way through to management or senior levels.
Engineers come in many varieties and work for a huge range of different employers. There’s a job for you whether you want to reduce our reliance on fossil fuels, keep people around the world supplied with fresh water and sanitation, build fabulous bridges or just make your favourite mode of transport go even faster. Practically everything man-made has had some input from engineers in terms of its design and creation – and often in its maintenance and improvement too. The modern world couldn’t function without them!
Whether you’re looking to take your first steps into a career in engineering, already employed and want to advance your skills, or you’re an employer looking to train your existing employees or take on new staff, an engineering apprenticeship teaches the latest skills and knowledge required by the industry.
As an Apprentice you’ll learn from your colleagues at work and from the expert tutors at college who have worked as engineers, some starting their careers as apprentices, meaning they have a wealth of real-life knowledge and experience.
