What employers say

"The recruitment and training of technicians as well as graduates is critical to developing and retaining the workforce we need to continue to take on the world's toughest energy challenges.  The mixture of learning on and off-the-job enables apprentices to develop the skills that work best for our business and allows the knowledge and experience of our existing technicians to be transferred and enhanced.  The programme provides a highly effective and efficient means of attracting and developing new technicians while reducing the burden on individual employers and sponsors".

David Cook, Chairman of Steering Group 

"BP has been part of the Oil and Gas Technical Apprentice Programme for a number of years and this has now become our only source of trainee technicians for the North Sea Region which reflects our confidence in the training the apprentices gain on this programme”.

 Louise Sealey, Early Career Development Advisor, BP

"The Modern Apprenticeship scheme plays a key role in helping us to bring fresh talent into the industry, enabling us to support and invest in the next generation of technicians. This programme provides trainees with the structure, technical knowledge and experienced mentoring they need to flourish in their discipline".
