Apprenticeship opportunities

 

Our nationally recognised Skills Academy has been at the forefront of apprenticeship schemes, from the moment it opened its doors nearly 65 years ago - winning awards for both the Academy and some of its apprentices.

An apprenticeship with AWE is a great way to get your career off the ground. It will give you all the skills and training you’ll need to pursue a varied and exciting role.

You will be part of our company, which has a very unique role in supporting the defence and security of the United Kingdom. To do this to the best of our ability means we must nurture the right skills and expertise. Our apprenticeship schemes are designed to do just that.  APPs_National_Awards_2015_Reg_Winner_CMYK_live
