Top apprenticeships at University of Sheffield & AMRC

 April 27, 2017

The AMRC Training Centre, part of the University of Sheffield AMRC Group, provides training in the practical and academic skills that engineering and manufacturing companies need to compete globally, from apprenticeship through to higher education.

The pioneering 5,500 sqm apprenticeship training centre was established to train the next generation of world leading engineers and is currently training more than 550 people aged from 16, including second and third year apprentices who spend one day a week at the Centre.

Encouraging girls into engineering

The engineering and manufacturing sectors have an ageing workforce, a workforce that will be looking to retire in the next 10 to 15 years. If the current wealth of experience and skills leave the industry, without being replaced, there will be a major skills requirement across an enormous variety of roles. This is where apprenticeships step in.

You could join young women like 18 year-old Leigh Worsdale who was recently named 'Apprentice of the Year', on a fantastic apprenticeship programme where you can earn while you learn.

Women, become one of the next generation of engineers and take a look at the current opportunities!
