A recent report by the Royal Academy of Engineering has found that British industry will need 100,000 new graduates in science, technology, engineering and mathematics (STEM) subjects every year until 2020 just to maintain current employment numbers.  At the moment the UK produces only 90,000 STEM graduates a year.  The push to boost the UK’s engineering sector is a major focus for the government and there are career opportunities in a wide variety of fields – manufacturing, energy, utilities and transportation to name a few.

But you don’t have to go to university to get into the world of engineering.  An Apprenticeship is increasingly being seen as a preferable alternative, both by employers and students.  You get paid a wage whilst you learn, have the support of an employer and may even begin to be promoted up the career ladder before you finish your qualifications.

Babcock International Group has over 150 years experience in Engineering and is one of just a handful of Engineering training providers to achieve a ‘Grade 1 – Outstanding’ rating from Ofsted.  We work with many of the leading names in Engineering, including EDF Energy, Network Rail, Southern Water and BAE Systems.

As an Engineering Apprentice you’ll work towards NVQ Level 2 and in most cases, go onto an Advanced Apprenticeship with NVQ Level 3.
