Why become an apprentice?

For over 50 years we have been offering apprenticeships in a range of electrical engineering disciplines, training more than 600 apprentices.

With outstanding in-house training facilities, a dedicated team of experienced instructors and the opportunity to gain on the job training, our apprenticeship programme offers a career across a number of different roles. Each year we recruit apprentices for one or more of these roles depending on our business requirements.

Alongside the opportunity to gain hands on technical and practical experience, apprentices participating in our accredited two year programme will work towards achieving a nationally recognised qualification in Electrical Engineering.
