Here are just some of the most popular examples that are regularly available:
This apprenticeship tends to last for approx. 42 months and consists of technical training workshop practice and your work placement within Victrex.

In year 2, you will study 1 day per week for Level 3 Advanced Manufacturing Engineering Diploma and spend 4 days per week within your team environment in Victrex.
Whilst year 3 and 4 you will be working full time within your team in Victrex and preparing for your End Point Assessment.

If this option interests you: You will need a minimum of 5 GCSEs at grade 4 (Grade C equivalent) or higher including Mathematics, English and Science, or equivalent and/or relevant experience. Have an aptitude for engineering and enjoy problem solving.
You will be employed on a full-time basis studying for a Level 3 Business Administration apprenticeship. This is a work-based apprenticeship, so no college attendance is required. But there will be an opportunity to study for further qualifications.
This 15-month apprenticeship may involve working independently or as part of a team and will involve developing, implementing, maintaining, and improving administrative services or working on the social media platforms for the company, and this option also requires a short work-based project to be completed during this time.
Ideally, you will hold L2 qualifications in Maths and English already.
