Mechanical Engineering Apprenticeship

“I would definitely recommend an Apprenticeship to anyone who likes the hands-on approach to learning."

“I was interested in Engineering as my dad and granddad were both Engineers so I knew a bit about what was involved. When I spent a week at Middlesex Group everything just seemed to click into place. Everyone was so friendly and encouraging, and any worries I had about it being a male-dominated industry quickly went out of the window. When I heard about their Apprenticeship scheme it just seemed natural for me to apply and I’m just so glad I did.”

“It’s definitely a challenge, which is what I wanted. I’ve started in the tool room along with other Apprentices and will then move onto the production CNC mills which I’m looking forward to. It’s very technical and there is a lot to learn, but I get so much support from our supervisor that I always feel I can achieve – even when it’s tough!

“I would definitely recommend an Apprenticeship to anyone who likes the hands-on approach to learning. To have the opportunity to earn, learn and gain qualifications right up to degree level is fantastic.”
