Boulting were delighted to attend the open day at The Engineering College in Birkenhead on March 7th. The event saw some 150 people visit the college and talk to prospective employers.
Most attendees were just starting out their engineering journeys, finding out the possible routes for employment and what they could expect from a career in engineering. And with young people from the age of 15 to their early 20’s, there was plenty of paths to consider.
The type of apprenticeships that we can offer has diversified over the years and range from hand on engineering roles such as electrical or mechanical apprenticeships to roles within the project controls arena including commercial, design and planning.
Nick Woollacott Labour Manager explains “Our apprenticeships herald the start of many opportunities within the Boulting. We like to have candidates with grade C’ GCSE or above in English, Maths and ICT. We can offer further educational opportunities as well structured learning and development plans for people to progress their careers As a multi-disciplinary engineering company there are many different types of engineering opportunities within our business, including a chance for people to work abroad for our International business”
There has been a long association with The Engineering College as some Boulting apprentices attend their courses. “Currently we have two apprentices who are part way through their 3 and half year training. After attending full time for the first year, they are now putting into practice the skills they have learnt on site. As well as Boulting mentors, Training officers from The Engineering college visit the apprentices every 10 weeks to support their learning” described Nick.
