Engineering, Manufacturing & Maintenance

Why Choose An Apprenticeship?

Kickstart your career with an apprenticeship and earn as you learn.

Across North Wales and beyond, companies are recruiting for apprenticeships and training people in the skills they need to succeed in their career.

As an apprentice you will earn whilst you learn, gaining skills, knowledge, experience and recognised qualifications along the way. Whether you’re aged between 16 and 19 or 20 and over, a range of apprenticeship options may be available to you.

North Wales has the most technologically advanced manufacturing and engineering firms in the whole of the UK and 34% of North East Wales’ employment is from manufacturing. We work closely with over 150 local engineering and manufacturing to develop their workforces through Apprenticeships and build industry relevant skills to create a thriving sector

Engineering Apprentices will spend time at our recently refurbished state of the art facilities at our Deeside or Bersham Road campus for day release and assessment as well as being assessed onsite by our industry served assessing teams.

Engineering apprentices will be required to have a high level of maths and english as well as the ability to work precisely

We recommend that before starting an Engineering Apprenticeship you enrol full time in college to complete a Performing Engineering Operations (PEO) course or Level 3 Enhanced Engineering before looking for an Apprenticeship
