What training will the apprentice take and what qualification will the apprentice get at the end?

  • Here is how the programme works:

Year 1: The likelihood is that you will spend your first year in college studying towards your Foundation and knowledge qualifications and we will begin integrating you into the Yunex community through work placements during the academic break (this is subject to college provision)
Year 2: College is likely to be on a 1 day a week basis at this point. You’ll spend the rest of your time as part of a field service centre team. This will involve installing, maintaining and fault finding on highway electrical equipment. You will also begin your workplace-based competence qualification.
Year 3: In year three you will continue to develop your technical, occupational, and professional competence and build your business network.
Year 4: In year 4 you will complete the end point assessment requirements and transition into a permanent role within the business.
 

  • Whilst completing the training programme, you will have the opportunity to be cross-trained in other areas, such as fault administration, workshop, stores and on other Yunex equipment. This will lead to you being a more knowledgeable engineer with a deeper understanding of how your work interacts with others and fits into the bigger Yunex picture.
  • Alongside on-the-job training, you will also work towards an NVQ which consists of two levels, which will enable you to be utilised across the whole spectrum of skill sets and disciplines.
  • To assist with your learning, you will also be allocated a mentor.
  • Apprenticeship Standard Engineering Fitter
