Applications open for AWE Engineering apprenticeship- apply now!

Calling all budding male and female engineers in the Basingstoke, Newbury and Reading areas.

AWE has launched its annual apprenticeship recruitment campaign targeting school leavers and college students, to become the next generation of engineers.

Applications for the award winning AWE apprenticeship programme opened on Monday 16th November and are available online with a start date of September 2016.

A number of local colleges and schools are supporting the AWE apprenticeship campaign including Newbury College, Reading College ad Basingstoke College of Technology, who have had a number of students successfully complete the programme and go on to become successful engineers.

AWE's nationally recognised Skills Academy will see apprentices work on site to achieve an NVQ qualification combined with day release to college to achieve a Level 3 Technical Certificate.

Applications for AWE engineering apprenticeships are invited in the following areas:

Geoff Druce, Head of Learning and Development at AWE, comments:

The AWE apprenticeships are an excellent chance for young people with an interest in engineering to gain real workplace experience in the engineering industry whilst gaining a work based qualification, and earning at the same time.  At the end of their training, the apprentices will be fully qualified engineers with highly successful and well paid careers ahead of them.

AWE is holding an open day for school leavers and college students to find out more about the AWE apprenticeship programme ad to speak to apprentices ad instructors on Tuesday 1st December, 3pm-8pm at Tadley Library, Mulfords Hill.

AWE looks forward to continuing to inspire the great minds of the future with new apprentice who will join our business next year.
