The three-year engineering apprenticeship course – the first of its kind in the UK – aims to equip students with the skills they need to launch a successful career in the green energy sector.

Successful completion of the course will equip graduates with the educational requirements for registration as Chartered Engineers with the Institution of Mechanical Engineers or Institution of Engineering and Technology.

Many of the students will spend one of their placements in Hull itself – the UK’s ‘Energy Estuary’, as well as placements in Frimley and Newcastle to offer graduates experience of all aspects of the sector, from sales to construction, project management to environment and health and safety.
