Traineeship Opportunity

Could 2020 be the year you kick-start your career in engineering? Our traineeship programme is one of the most popular, providing aspiring engineers with a foundation of skills and knowledge in different engineering disciplines, including electrical, fabrication, welding, mechanical engineering and CAD giving you the perfect taster of engineering before choosing a trade!

The Engineering College are looking for our next cohort of young aspiring engineers to participate in our next Traineeship programme this year!

Traineeships give young people aged 16 to 24 the skills and experience that employers are looking for, helping you to boost your career prospects with an apprenticeship or other employment in the future.

This programme is ideal for anyone who wants to get into engineering but is undecided of which trade to study. If you’re unsuccessful when applying for an apprenticeship or other job due to a lack of skills and experience then you may be a good candidate for a Traineeship also.

Traineeships are an opportunity to gain real work experience, employability skills and improve your English and Maths, if needed, along side building your engineering knowledge.

The Traineeship Programme will provide you with the opportunity to build your CV and get valuable work experience with local and national employers, where you are able to learn about the business and the industry it operates in.

Work preparation training will put you in a better position to compete for an apprenticeship or other employment. Traineeships prepare young people for their future careers by helping them to become ‘work ready’.

Please complete our online application form for this programme and be sure to tick ‘Traineeship’.

Please Note: Due to the high number of applications, if you do not hear back from The Engineering College, you should consider that your application has been unsuccessful on this occasion.
