Manufacturing Apprenticeship

Our Manufacturing Apprenticeship programme focuses on the production and manufacturing of Renishaw products and the maintenance of plant equipment.

Applications for the 2020 intake are now closed.

Manufacturing Apprentices will learn and develop engineering skills and knowledge through onsite work placements and studying towards nationally recognised qualifications.

  • You will learn a range of skills including soldering, assembly of products, machining, and maintenance of equipment.
  • You will rotate around the division in different placements, spending time in production, machine shop and maintenance.
  • You will be required to work shift patterns as part of some of these placements. Learning will be done through a combination of day release and on the job learning.
  • Throughout the apprenticeship, you will meet regularly with our apprentice team to make sure you are on track for your End Point Assessment.
  • You will transfer off the scheme into either production, machine shop or maintenance – this is based on where your skills fit best.

Who is this apprenticeship for?

   • work well under pressure
   • like seeing the output of their days' work
   • are flexible enough to deal with the changing demands on production and   production techniques

What qualifications do I need?

• GCSEs at a minimum of Grade D/Level 3 including Maths, English and Science.

We welcome applications from all backgrounds and experiences.
