Apprenticeships

Our apprentices and their success are at the very heart of everything we do. Since we opened our doors in 2013, more than 300 employers from across the Sheffield City Region and beyond have asked us to train more than 1,000 apprentices - equipping them with the skills needed to be part of a dynamic workforce that can help grow business.

We offer a number different pathways into engineering apprenticeships and whether you’re coming to us fresh out of school, after A-levels, upskilling or re-skilling, you will be supported all the way by a team of specialists with a wealth of industry experience. You can start your career journey with us as an advanced apprentice and work right through to postgraduate level, earning as you learn and gaining real work experience but without the worry of debt.


Reasons to choose an apprenticeship

An apprenticeship is the smart way to combine work and study by mixing classroom learning with real world experience – earning as you learn with a secure and stimulating job at the end of it and pathways to further  developing skills and qualifications.

Our apprenticeships are a high-value, high quality alternative to  traditional academic study and are aimed at school leavers, and those who want to change career or develop the one they already have.

AMRC Training Centre apprentices are employed on a full-time basis, working at least 30 hours every week along with blocks of practical on-the-job training and academic study.

The format of our apprenticeships will depend on the the level of study. You can find out more by selecting the level at which you would like to study above.  

  1. Earn while you learn - Apprentices earn approximately £200 a week, but many employers offer more than this.
  2. Relevant real world experience - Apprenticeships ensure that you get hands-on experience and help you to really hit the ground running with your career.
  3. Gain nationally recognised qualifications - We only offer nationally recognised qualifications that are acknowledged and respected by employers across the world.
  4. No debt from student loans - Your employer pays for you to gain your qualification so you won’t be weighed down by student debt.
  5. We support you throughout your apprenticeship - Our dedicated team will support you throughout your apprenticeship journey, from finding a job through to visiting you in company, all backed by the University of Sheffield and the AMRC. 

Our in-house recruitment team will support you in finding an employer and will work with you to make sure that you are matched with the right company to get your engineering career off to the very best start.
