We have Engineering & Manufacturing Apprenticeship vacancies across the North East

Engineering is defined as ‘the branch of science and technology concerned with the design, building and use of engines, machines, and structures’ ‘Engineering is all around us’*. 

Within the UK there are 5.7 million employees working in engineering, representing just over 19% of the total UK employment. This further emphasises its importance to the contribution it makes in terms of economic activity and exports, as well as impacting positively on society in general.

Roles within this sector are extremely varied and utilise a range of skills that would be too exhaustive to list, however, some examples are design engineer, maintenance technician, electrical engineer, fabricator/welder, instrumentation technician and mechanical engineer.
