The UK government has committed to investing £30 million in the engineering sector, with particular focus on increasing the supply of engineers, inspiring women to join the sector and eliminating skills shortages in small engineering businesses.
As we have discussed here in the ATG News pages before, there are several different types of Engineering Apprenticeships available, and lots of different job roles that you could go for. And engineering is changing from being such a male orientated profession, with more women now joining the sector – just look at ATG Apprenticeships Engineering Apprentice Fay Chicken, who was the only girl on her Engineering Apprenticeship course, but loved her training and has now gone on to a brilliant job role with CERN.
If you think that an Engineering Apprenticeship might be for you, take a look at the latest vacancies here on the ATG Apprenticeships website to see if there’s one that suits you. But if you’re interested in applying, you’ll need to be quick as many of these vacancies have closing dates of the end of August, so don’t delay!
