Combining classroom study with on-the-job learning, our Engineering Apprenticeships provide a genuine alternative to university, offering the training, guidance and support you need to develop valuable skills, earn sought-after qualifications and establish yourself in your career.
Usually lasting 3½ years, they enable you to complete an official Apprenticeship, as regulated and approved by the German Chambers of Commerce and Industry.
We offer three Apprenticeship schemes:
- Aircraft Mechanic (specialising in engine technology)
- Industrial Mechanic (specialising in machinery and systems engineering)
- Cutting Mechanic (specialising in turning).
These are roles for people who like the idea of using their hands to undertake highly skilled work. You'll have to be methodical, capable of paying close attention and able to use your common sense to solve problems.
Throughout your Apprenticeship, you'll also attend vocational school (usually on a day-release basis) to study for appropriate nationally recognised qualifications.
As an Engineering Apprentice in Germany, you'll work towards the internal B-Examiner Licence, or even the globally recognised certificate for the EASA Part 66 CAT A. Both qualifications exceed the regular requirements of your particular Apprenticeship scheme.
While your apprenticeship will be hard work, we'll never expect you to do it all alone. Throughout your time on your programme, you will have constant access to the advice and encouragement of your training supervisor and line manager, as well as your colleagues.
Together, they'll help you set your objectives, monitor your progress, understand tricky concepts and, ultimately, achieve your full potential.
