ECITB Launch 2013 Apprenticeship Campaign Yorkshire & Humberside

14/12/2012 - 14/12/2012


ECITB Launch 2013 Apprenticeship Campaign in Yorkshire & Humberside


The Engineering Construction Industry Training Board’s (ECITB) 2013 Apprenticeship Campaign will be launched in the Yorkshire & Humberside region at the Centre for the Assessment of Technical Competence- Humber (CATCH), on Thursday 31st January 2013.


The ECITB works in partnership with The Grimsby Institute and CATCH to offer a range of apprenticeship programmes, all of which are approved and accredited by the ECITB, the statutory organisation and awarding body for the engineering construction industry.


Discussions with employers in the area have led to a move away from a single year structure, to a three year apprenticeship programme. The apprentices will spend the first year at CATCH, learning the practical and theoretical elements of their trade. CATCH provides a unique training facility which offers a safe and authentic site environment with full-scale equipment for experiential learning and development.


Regional Account Manager, Adrian Wookey said, “The open evening will be a fantastic opportunity for young people to explore the apprenticeship options available to them, and tour the state-of-the-art training facilities. The Yorkshire & Humberside Regional Team will all be there to advise visitors on the benefits of apprenticeships and what is required to become an apprentice.”


 Visitors will also get the chance to speak to partnering companies and employers such as Doosan Power Systems Ltd, Fabricom GDF Suez and Jacobs LES Ltd who offer ECITB apprenticeships in a range of disciplines. Trainers from The Grimsby Institute will be present to give advice, as well as first year apprentices who will also be on hand to share their experiences of being an apprentice.  


At present the ECITB invest £10m annually, supporting 2200 apprentices in the UK to learn those valuable skills needed to drive the economy. The engineering construction industry offers a multitude of career options, which many young people may not have previously considered.

 Adrian Wookey commented, “All ECITB apprenticeships are employer-led, developed through collaboration with industry professionals. They are designed to not only meet employer needs but to also offer young people the opportunity to begin a long and successful career in a prospering industry.”
