Acting in partnership with a local training provider, General Dynamics UK has developed a four-year Apprenticeship Programme for Engineering Technicians.

You will work towards NVQ (Level 3) and BTEC HNC qualifications and successful completion will result in you being qualified as an Engineering Technician.

You will gain practical engineering experience, as well as a valuable insight into a working environment, from spending time at the training provider facilities and our General Dynamics UK sites.

Our Engineering Technician Apprenticeship Programme will give you the opportunity to gain valuable experience in the fields of General Engineering, working in a laboratory environment, Systems Engineering, Software Engineering, Hardware and Support as well as gaining a wider understanding of business activities and the projects and programmes General Dynamics UK is involved in.

During your time on the Apprenticeship Programme, you will have the support of experienced training professionals to ensure you achieve your academic potential. You will also have the support and guidance of engineering managers and mentors in the business who will be with you every step of the way.

We are looking for the engineers of the future, so our expectations of you will be high.
Taking on an apprenticeship is a big commitment, are you up to the challenge?
