What's an apprenticeship?

An apprenticeship is a structured training programme that you can choose to move onto after you have completed your course at the end of Year 13 at Crewe Engineering and Design UTC. An Apprenticeship is specific to your needs, enabling you to gain knowledge and experience leading to a successful career.  It is a mixture of on and off-the-job training enabling you to gain qualifications relevant to your chosen occupation.

The advantages of having an apprenticeship:

•      Start a real job within your chosen career
•      Receive a recognised qualification.
•      Earn a wage.
•      Learn industry-specific skills which employers are looking for.
•      Have the opportunity to learn completely new skills or study further in your chosen area.

Apprenticeships vary in level. The most common levels for our students who leave us at the end of Year 13 are Level 3 and Level 4. The choices of apprenticeship courses vary, dependent on the employer and what type of work they do.

A popular apprenticeship is the Level 3 Engineering Technician course, but there are lots of others to choose from including CAD, Welding or Lean Manufacture.
