About our apprenticeship

This advanced apprenticeship allows you to gain the skills to become an electrical technician. After four years you should be equipped with the knowledge and experience to be appointed to a role as a shift technician.

You will work Monday to Friday during your apprenticeship.  During your first year you will attend Burnley College full time with scheduled work placements on site. From year two onwards you will be based on site, spending one day per week at Burnley College.  This apprenticeship will start in September 2019.

The qualifications you will study are:

  • Y1 - Level 3 BTEC/Diploma qualifications, including functional skills
  • Y2 - Papermaking Technical Certificate Level 2
  • Y3 - NVQ Level 3 Extended Diploma, first year of Engineering HNC, and Papermaking Technical Certificate Level 3
  • Y4 – Completing HNC

From year three there may be opportunities to home your skills acquired by working on shift.  If this is the case, you will be given appropriate time off to attend college.

What you need to apply

You will have or are predicted to achieve a minimum of 5 GCSE qualifications at standard grade C/grade 4 or above, including in Maths, English and Science. However, what is important for this apprenticeship is that you are able to show that you have a genuine interest in electrical engineering through study, hobbies or groups that you may be involved with. 

You will be a driven, self-motivated and enthusiastic individual with a positive can-do attitude, happy to work as part of a team and willing to learn and develop. 

Key to success for this apprenticeship is to have the ability to balance time between studies and work to ensure success in both.
