Apprenticeships at Hinkley Point C

At Hinkley Point C (HPC), our aspiration is to create 1000 apprenticeships throughout the course of the project. The wide range of skills required to build HPC means that there really is opportunity for everyone.

We have placed apprenticeships at the forefront of our workforce development and skills needs. We are dedicated to providing the best possible access and experience for all apprentices working and learning as part of the project.

Once on-site, we will provide the apprentice community with a creative, vibrant and supportive environment that will provide the best possible foundations that any new career requires. HPC apprentices will benefit from both face-to-face support via an on-site apprentice hub as well as digital access to relevant information, learning and care.

The collaborative nature of the project means that apprentices working at HPC will be able to work alongside and socialise with a variety of different people across the HPC apprentice community and overall workforce. Exposure and experience from this unique environment will ensure that any apprentice working at HPC has the best possible springboard to a successful career.

What is an apprenticeship?

An apprenticeship is a career, not just a job. To get started in the world of work you usually need a combination of experience and qualifications. An apprenticeship gives you both, combining on-the-job training with study, leading to learning, earning and experiencing.

It usually takes between one and five years to complete an apprenticeship depending on which level you take. Apprenticeships are available across a wide range of industries at Hinkley Point C, with many high quality organisations offering them.

Whilst it is widely acknowledged that full-time education, such as college, sixth form or university is a proven route into employment, it does not always offer the valuable work experience that an apprenticeship can offer. Apprenticeships allow you to earn while you learn, and give you the opportunity to develop the skills that employers really want; including specific skills relating to your job, your company and your chosen sector.
