Our Engineering Maintenance Apprenticeship Scheme is a four-year programme which focuses on the skills required to maintain our power stations. This could be one of our coal, gas or nuclear plants situated around the UK. As well as the technical skills, we will also help you develop the attitudes and behaviours essential to the safe operation of our power stations. Upon completion, you’ll be awarded a Maintenance and Operations Engineering Technician Apprenticeship Certificate, you’ll also have attained a BTEC Level 3, with the potential for further education such as a HNC.
The programme runs for four years, the first two of which are based at our Engineering Training Academy at the Royal Naval base, HMS Sultan near Portsmouth, Hampshire. During this time you’ll undergo training in academic and workshop environments to ensure you gain an excellent introduction to engineering and develop a strong skills foundation. Part of this programme also covers the development of life skills, like confidence and communication.
