The Engineering Maintenance Apprenticeship Scheme is a four-year programme that focuses on skills required to maintain our power stations. As well as the technical side, we’ll 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 the National College for Nuclear, delivered through Bridgwater and Taunton College, Somerset. 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.
