How do I become an Advanced Engineering Apprentice?


If you're thinking about a career in Engineering 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 also 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 a DTA Assessment Test, this will more than likely be in the form of an email so do keep checking your email for an invite.  

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