Engineering Apprenticeships in Wales

Apprenticeships are designed specifically around your business needs. Apprenticeships are work-based training programmes that will provide your workforce with hands-on experience and nationally recognised qualifications.

Building relationships with industry is paramount to the successes we have experienced over the past 55 years. With a pass rate higher than the national average, our commitment to you as an employer is that we will analyse your needs to ensure any training is tailored to your company’s requirements. We are always on-hand to discuss an individual’s progression, with monitoring and assessment of your apprentices carried out at regular intervals.

We begin our commitment to you right from the start by offering you our recruitment support service. We can advertise, manage and promote your apprenticeship advert across a number of platforms, filter through and shortlist suitable applications using any selection criteria you wish to set, and carry out our aptitude tests on all suitable candidates to help you select the best possible candidate for you and your company.
