Welcome to our Apprenticeship Job Shop page. Here you can find adverts of apprenticeships that employers have flagged up to us. Employers regularly send us details of apprenticeships because they know that we prepare young people for the world of work – in particular, for jobs in the engineering, manufacturing and high tech sectors. This is also why parents want their daughter or son to attend a UTC.

These are not the only available apprenticeships in these fields – there are more opportunities advertised on the National Apprenticeships Service site and employers’ own websites. For more details of each apprenticeship below including how to apply, please click on the links and contact the relevant employer.
