We are actively recruiting for Engineering Technician Apprentices to start their apprenticeship in September 2024. This is a four year apprenticeship with the first year being full time with a Gloucester based training provider, and the subsequent years learning in our manufacturing facility based in Stroud, with additional specialist college based training and learning. This is an NVQ Level 3 qualification, with the opportunity for further learning for right candidate.
We look for a minimum of five GCSE, level 4 or above, in Maths, English and Science (plus 2 more subjects). The candidate must have a strong aptitude for maths with an interest in finding out how things work.
