Metroline Apprenticeship - producing some of the best apprentices in the country
Here at Metroline, our apprentices achieve some of the highest exam results in the country and once qualified can become part of a team that plays a key role in keeping London moving. Without engineers, Metroline could simply not operate.
That is why you can be sure that an Engineering Apprenticeship at Metroline is second to none. With opportunities in three technical disciplines, you will start a career full of exciting prospects.
Not only will the training be first class but the facilities will match. Our CELF Centre is a state of the art engineering base for all of Metroline's major engineering works. Containing the industry's latest technology and machinery; working and training at any of our engineering centres is an opportunity no apprentice can afford to miss.
What you need to be able to join us
A Metroline Apprenticeship is not for those who want to totally avoid academic work, so we need you to have (or expect to get) at least GCSE (or equivalent) Grade C in Maths, English and one Science subject and at least one other subject (preferably a technical subject i.e. Design and Technology).
If you don't hold these, a pre-apprenticeship qualification such as an IMI Vehicle Maintenance and repair Level 1 could be accepted.
You also need to show us that you want a career in engineering; that you've thought things through and know engineering really is right for you. Teamwork is also very important for us, so we look to recruit people who work well with others.
A Metroline Apprenticeship starts at 4 years, which can be advanced to 5 years for selected candidates with a view to obtaining an HNC management qualification, and within that time you will gain an Advanced Modern Engineering Apprenticeship and up to NVQ Level 3 in your chosen profession.
There are 2 elements to an apprenticeship at Metroline:
This begins with basic engineering skills training in a workshop environment. This will be at a Metroline engineering site. When you're considered competent, you'll start to put these skills into practice for real, working alongside experienced engineers on real components and engines. As you draw to the final stages of your apprenticeship, you'll start to focus on the specific skills you'll need for your first full time job.
2. National Vocational Qualifications
From your experience on the job and from college, you'll be working towards a National Vocational Qualification. NVQs are about demonstrating competence, and cover technical as well as personal skills (known as Key Skills).
To apply, please email your CV and covering letter to Phil Pugh at [email protected].
Please note, we only accept applications for apprentices between March and April each year.
