Engineering apprenticeships are perfect for those considering beginning or developing their career in oil and gas, engineering, construction or civil engineering. Placed within the engineering and manufacturing framework, engineering is one of the most vital careers you can choose to pursue, and there is a range of engineering apprenticeship training courses available, suitable for people at every stage of their career.

The engineering sector offers a variety of roles, from being a naval architect to working in oil and gas. One of the highest paying industries in the world, one of the great things about doing an engineering apprenticeship is the fact that your skill set will be applicable to a range of other careers as well.

Who can apply for engineering apprenticeships?

Engineering apprenticeships aren’t just for school leavers, although it does offer a valuable route into the career for new starters as well. There is no age limit and engineering apprenticeships are open to people of any age and any career level. Apprenticeships are valuable for staff of any industry looking to learn practical, role-ready knowledge and skills and you can use the apprenticeship levy to train existing staff as well as taking on new employees. Engineering apprenticeships are offered from Level 2 (intermediate) all the way up to Level 3 (advanced) and are a great way to develop the knowledge and skill set of existing staff.

Name Level Equivalent Educational Level
Intermediate 2 GCSE
Advanced 3 A Level
Higher 4,5, 6 and 7 Foundation degree and above
Degree 6 and 7 Bachelor's or master's degree

If you are a company required to pay the apprenticeships levy, you can spend your levy money on apprenticeship training and end-point assessment with a training provider on the Education & Skills Funding Agency’s Register of Apprenticeship Training Providers (RoATP). We only list RoTAP approved apprenticeship providers, and you can search for courses here to find a provider to match.

Apprenticeship training must last a minimum of 12 months and 20% of the apprentice’s time must be spent on off-the-job training. You can only use funds in the account to pay for apprenticeship training and assessment for apprentices that work at least 50% of the time in England, and only up to the funding band maximum for that apprenticeship.

For employers who don’t pay the levy, support is still available. If you pay 10% of the apprenticeship training costs and the government will pay the rest (90%), up to the funding band maximum. This is known as ‘co-investment’.
