Craft Apprenticeship

HPC Craft Apprenticeship Scheme

Description: In today’s highly competitive work place a University degree is not always the best route to a challenging, fulfilling and rewarding career. The newly restructured HPC Craft Apprenticeship Scheme provides you with the skills and work experience to follow an exciting career in the world of Engineering.

The goal of the HPC apprenticeship scheme is to provide a learning environment which blends real life practical work experience with the all-important academic training to equip you for work in the 21st century.

HPC is offering 2 levels of apprenticeship:

  • A 2 year Intermediate Apprenticeship follows a 2 year City and Guilds foundation course alongside an NVQ Level 2 qualification
  • An Advanced Apprenticeship follows on for a further 2 years leading to a BTEC Level 3 and an NVQ Level 3 qualification

HPC is not necessarily looking for candidates who academically excel, there is a need for practical individuals who are committed team players with a willingness to learn.

Being an apprentice requires hard work and discipline to succeed, balancing academic studies hand in hand with the daily demands of the job. As an apprentice at HPC you will learn how to deal with the daily pressure of working life, learning new skills and the importance of job safety giving you a well-rounded excellent foundation to a successful career.

HPC has a proud reputation of providing lifetime careers, and its continued success is due to the quality and dedication of its people so why not join a winning team?

In return, HPC is offering a salary package which includes 25 days holiday plus bank holidays, a pension scheme & private healthcare after a qualifying period.
