How do I become an Advanced Engineering Apprentice?


You will need to complete one of our Online Application Forms. Make sure to fill it in with as much detail as possible, especially your work experience and why you want to do an Apprenticeship. We will need an up to date copy of your CV to send out to Employers.

Once we have received your Application Form we will invite you to sit an Assessment Test at DTA which you will need to do before we pass your details to Employers.

We recommend that you have 4 GCSE's (C or above) in Maths, English, Science and ICT or equivalent to apply for an Advanced Apprenticeship. As part of your framework you will have to sit Level 2 Functional Skills in Maths, English and ICT should you not have a Grade C or above.  

If you are unsure if Engineering or an Apprenticeship is something for you, we are happy to arrange a tour of the building, have a chat about Apprenticeships and what we offer.
