Apprenticeship Overview

KITS has been established as one of the leading independent Engineering Training Providers in the area. KITS has a fully resourced workshop designed to replicate a modern workshop environment. All our apprentices receive training on a wide range of equipment that they will find in a workshop, from manual lathes and milling machines to the latest state of the art CNC machines with on machine justification.

What are Apprenticeships?

Apprenticeships are an excellent way of gaining qualifications and workplace experience. As an employee, you can earn as you learn and you gain practical skills from the workplace.

Engineering is split into 3 areas

  • Mechanical
  • Fabrication
  • Electrical

An apprenticeship programme can take up to 4 years, starting at level 2 and progressing onto level 3. After the apprentice completes the level 2 block programme, they then join their employer, they put into place the skills they have developed from working with KITS training staff, this complements all of the hard work and are able to put those skills into real work with the employer. Learners attend College at KITS one day per week until they have completed the programme, whereby they gain an Apprenticeship Certificate from the relevant Sector Skills Council (SSC)

What are Apprenticeships?

As employees, apprentices earn a wage and work alongside experienced staff to gain job-specific skills. Off the job, usually on a day-release basis, apprentices receive training to work towards nationally recognised qualifications. Anyone living in England, over 16 years-old and not in full-time education can apply.

Apprenticeships can take between one and four years to complete depending on the level of Apprenticeship, the apprentice’s ability and the industry sector. The minimum salary is £3.30 per hour; however, many apprentices earn significantly more.

What are Apprenticeships

They are work-based training programmes designed around the needs of employers, which lead to national recognised qualifications. You can use Apprenticeships to train both new and existing employees. Funding is available to train apprentices.

Apprenticeships are designed by the Sector Skills Councils, while the National Apprenticeship Service helps to fund the training. Business representatives from the relevant industry sector work with the Sector Skills Councils to develop the course content. Because they genuinely understand your business, the training will be relevant for your industry.
