Oxfordshire is crying out for more skilled engineers and there is no better place to start your journey than with one of our Engineering apprenticeships.

Engineers design, test and build the things that make our world go round and in Oxfordshire the opportunities are almost limitless. You could work on the space programme, or the nuclear fusion programme, or design and build equipment for the NHS or other medical research companies working at the cutting edge of health care. You could work for a large multinational organisation, or a small engineering start-up company that is really going places. Whichever type of company you prefer, these apprenticeships focus on developing the core skills that you will need to build a successful career in engineering.
Apprentices will learn basic engineering skills such as milling and turning, how to interpret design drawings and how to use hand tools, or machinery. Training will be provided in engineering theory such as the principles of electrical or mechanical engineering, depending on their specialism. Apprentices will need good maths skills, be able to pay close attention to detail and be keen to solve practical problems.
