Apprenticeships at Webtec
Do you want to earn while you learn and join a successful international company?
Webtec aims to sponsor 2-3 apprentices per year. These could be in Engineering, CNC machining or in product Sales or Administration.
Webtec apprenticeships provide an excellent opportunity to a debt free qualification relevant to the industry you’re keen to pursue a career in. Full time university and college isn’t for everyone and Webtec recognises that. That’s why we offer a credible alternative allowing you to advance your career through hands on learning by combining practical on the job training and off the job training which will enable you to develop highly sought skills, vital work experience and a nationally recognised qualification all whilst getting paid! Webtec want to invest in your talent by exposing you to a broad range of learning and development opportunities to unlock your full potential.
Webtec offer apprenticeships in the following areas:
Engineering – During an Engineering apprenticeship with Webtec you will develop core technical and practical skills while facing engineering challenges from the fluid power industry. You will be expected to study at college to degree level or higher.
CNC Apprentice – Your role as CNC Apprentice is to learn how to set and operate the CNC machines in a safe and competent manner and to work as part of a team ensuring that production schedules for the Machine Shop are met. You will be expected to study at college to BTEC level 3 or higher qualification.
Year one is about providing a firm base while also gaining an overview of how a company works. You will have a ‘home’ department of either engineering, milling or turning from which you are based. In addition to working in this department you will spend at 8 weeks of the first year in other departments. The departments will include:
Engineering, Machining, Assembly and Test, Production control, Inspection, Sales, Business support and Finance & HR.
Later years in the apprenticeship programme are tailored to you and your own personal development plan. It is expected that 8-10 weeks of the year are away from your home department and you can choose one or two departments in which to spend more time and further expand your knowledge through out your apprenticeship.
We have a flexible learning approach (it is also possible to change your ‘home’ department) and you can also choose to study the way that suits you best – options include day release, block release, full time or even open university. Which ever option you pick you will be supported and earn while you learn!
