At EAL and the Semta Group, we believe that apprenticeships are a highly-intensive training and qualification opportunity for individuals choosing to advance in their career.

The opportunity to attain industry-standard knowledge and relevant skills within a recognised framework is of interest to people working on all levels, especially with the backing of employers. Some of the most diverse and exciting careers on the planet can be found in engineering. From designing the latest military jet to developing clean energy solutions, engineers are at the very forefront of innovation.

Choosing an Apprenticeship to kick start your career in the engineering and advanced manufacturing industry is the first step to joining an exciting and dynamic world where the opportunities are limitless.

Most employers are now aware of the significant business benefits apprentices can deliver – increased productivity, improved competitiveness, helping to build a flexible, motivated, loyal workforce and securing the future talent pipeline – but some, particularly SMEs, are put off by the perceived level of hassle. While it’s true that deciphering funding eligibility and getting to grips with the skills landscape can be challenging.

Our position within the sector means we are uniquely placed to:
● identify sector skills needs through our world-class research capabilities
● influence the policy landscape in a way that benefits employers of all sizes
● understand complex business needs and tailor programmes accordingly
