Why Choose Our Apprenticeships

There is no upper age limit for apprenticeships, and you will earn whilst you learn. Employers are supported by government funding arrangements.

You’ll earn a wage while working towards recognised Gas, Plumbing or Electrical qualifications. Starting with the basics, you’ll learn the skills you need as you work on the job with your employer, and come one day a week to the training centre to learn in our fully equipped workshops and classrooms.

  • We are specialists in Gas, Electrical, Renewables and Plumbing with well-equipped training centres and first-class training from industry professionals.
  • More training days than many of our competitors, and smaller class sizes mean excellent success rates for our apprentices.
  • No strict application criteria, we give you support throughout your apprenticeship and help you find an employer.
  • Earn while you learn and gain valuable work experience.
  • Gain an industry-recognised qualification, including Functional Skills in English and Maths.
  • Start your career – many apprentices receive a job offer on completion of their course.
