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.

Fabrication and welding is a huge industry that manufactures metal work for a wide variety of industries and uses

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

Jack Cooper
Fabrication and Welding Apprentice

“I chose welding because I wanted a skill that is recognised worldwide and a career that has a lot of potential and different routes to go down. It also allows me to build things and do hands-on work, which is a process I really enjoy.

Its likely impossible to get where I am today without this qualification, it allowed me to work for a welding company for 5 years under a day release apprenticeship scheme where I was able to earn and save money while learning. I accrued lots of experience and ultimately finished with my NVQ Level 3 Diploma in Fabrication and Welding which is a qualification that’s recognised worldwide and pretty much every engineering/welding company looks for. I am currently living in New Zealand on a 12 month working holiday visa, so this qualification will help me get a job, which will in turn help me to acquire residency. It opens so many doors. I am currently considering applying for a number of welding companies in New Zealand and gain further experience to work as an offshore engineer in the future.

An apprenticeship in welding and fabrication enables you to learn while you get paid, students will finish with a recognised and desired skill that will set them up for life.
The fabrication & welding tutors at Coleg Cambria are second to none, very helpful and supportive.”
