  • Technical Engineering Apprenticeship

Spend three years learning on vital secure engineering and electrical projects. You’ll start by gaining key skills and qualifications at college, before turning everything you’ve learnt to projects ranging from CCTV and intruder detection systems to counter-eavesdropping measures. The second and third years are all about on-the-job training, and it’s here that the overseas opportunities will start to open up.

As well as a genuine interest in electronics and technology, you must have at least five GCSEs at C or above, including English, Maths and either a Physics based Science or Electronics subject.

  • IT Apprenticeship

Hackers, tappers and bugs – these are just some of the technological predators that you’ll spend 18 months learning how to combat. Work-based placements will see you sharpening your skills on everything from secure mobile solutions and service delivery to the very latest Cloud technologies. And all the way through, you’ll study for qualifications including a Level 3 Diploma in ICT.

With a fascination for all things technical, you’ll need at least five GCSEs at C or above, including English, Maths, ICT or Computing. You’ll also need a Level 3 qualification in a STEM subject.

And, because our work is of extraordinary importance, we can offer roles of remarkable impact
