You could move around with the apprenticeship
Your apprenticeship could take you around the country… maybe even to different parts of the world!
This is often the case when your places of study and work aren’t located near one another. For instance, if you’re an Engineering Maintenance Apprentice with EDF, you’ll spend the first two years studying and taking part in team-building activities at the National College for Nuclear in Somerset. After that, you’ll return to your workplace – which could be at any of EDF’s power stations around the country, like Sizewell, Torness, Heysham, Hartlepool, Dungeness, or Hinkley Point C in the future.

It might also be that your employer has overseas operations and part of your training takes you abroad. Or you get to travel to an event or conference as part of your programme. You might even be lucky enough to take part in extra-curricular activities that take you away from home – like Sam, an EDF Engineering Maintenance Apprentice, who features in this film.
