Stonehill Engineering offers apprenticeships across the company and can easily demonstrate what an important part of our future our apprentices are and will become.
10 Reasons to become an Apprentice at Stonehill Engineering:
1. Earn while you learn
Our apprenticeships offer a great opportunity to earn an income whilst undergoing training and developing new skills. We work with a number of educational providers to support their apprenticeship schemes. Apprentices attend college regularly and their tutors visit the workplace to assess their work.
2. Choice of apprenticeships
There is a wide range of apprenticeship courses on offer and this is continuing to expand. Apprenticeships come in 3 levels: intermediate, advanced and higher apprenticeships. They last between 1 and 5 years depending on the type and level of training.
3. What Apprenticeships can we offer you?
We offer apprenticeships in Engineering, but also have apprentices studying IT and Business Administration.
4. Receive support
Apprenticeship scheme providers pride themselves in offering a high level of support and guidance, making sure that an individual’s needs and requirements are met. All our apprentices are mentored by a senior member of the team, they are there to offer support and to use their knowledge, skills and connections to help the apprentice develop in their new role.
5. Gain practical experience
Our apprenticeships offer real-life work experience, allowing you to take a more practical approach to learning with training on the job.
6. Start your career
Apprenticeship schemes offer an opportunity to allow those lacking experience to start their professional career. We know how important apprentices are to the future of Stonehill Engineering and have many examples of employees who have continued their careers with us after completing their studies.
7.Enhance your skill set
An apprenticeship gives you the opportunity to learn new skills and develop existing ones. Working whilst you learn means you have the background and knowledge to get ahead of other applicants when starting your career.
8. Apprenticeship or University?
If you don’t want to attend University, then apprenticeships are a great option. They allow you to start training in a real working environment gaining experience and skills which can later lead to a career and potentially full-time job upon completion.
9. Anyone can be an Apprentice
Don’t be misinformed, apprenticeship schemes are not just for those of a young age, in fact anyone over the age of 16 and not in full time education can undergo an apprenticeship.
