Considering a career in engineering? Our British Engines apprenticeship scheme could be for you!

Applications for our award-winning North East apprentice scheme are now open to begin your apprenticeship in September 2021. Working alongside our professional engineers in one of eight businesses across the group, our award winning apprenticeship offers hands-on engineering experience.

Successful candidates will spend 20 weeks at the TDR Training School in Newcastle upon Tyne before joining a business within the group. As a British Engines apprentice, you will work a four day week on the factory floor, attending college one day per week for four years. You will have access to new opportunities, valuable support and constructive feedback as well as being paid full time, including time spent at college. Find out more about the scheme here.

British Engines Apprenticeship+ is recognised by the Institute of Mechanical Engineers (IMechE), teaching additional skills and knowledge outside those taught through a traditional college apprenticeship. Apprentices will receive three recognised qualifications: Level 2 Certificate in Engineering Operations, Level 3 Diploma in Machining and Level 3 Diploma in Advanced Manufacturing.

To date, 98% of our apprentices have been offered full time employment after finishing their apprenticeship and upon successful completion, there could be an opportunity to be offered employment at a business within the group. You may also have the opportunity to further your learning and development by completing additional courses. Click here to read Elliot’s story.
