Framework Overview

Apprenticeships are work-based training programmes which are designed around the needs of both the Apprentice and their employer. The Apprentice is equipped with theoretical knowledge combined with practical hands-on experience which leads to a nationally recognised qualification.

Next Steps

To become a fully qualified engineer, this can then lead to specialised training and development, within the engineering industry.


There are no costs to the Apprentice aged between 16 and 23 to complete an Apprenticeship.

The training for Apprentices that are aged between 16 and 18 is fully funded; for Apprentices that are aged 19 - 23 at the start of the course, a one-off training contribution fee is required from their employer (who may be eligible for a grant).

For Apprentices aged 24 and over and enrol upon an Advanced (level 3) Apprenticeship the employer will be charged a fee.

Additional Costs

Safety boots and work overalls.
