Apprenticeships

At A&P Group we understand the enormous importance of nurturing careers and developing the future of our workforce, as well as the skills our industry needs for a bright future.

That’s why we have worked hard to establish a highly successful apprenticeship programme in partnership with local colleges.  

Since the scheme’s launch in 2008, we have trained more than 100 apprentices in specialist skills such as engineering, welding, procurement and health and safety and set them on the path for future success.

The vast majority of our apprentices have gone straight into full-time employment and many have been able to progress their careers with A&P Group as well as gain further qualifications. 

In fact, 70% of the management, supervisors and technical staff at our Falmouth facility started out as apprentices themselves, which shows just what is possible with the right opportunity, training, and support.

2019 saw our largest intake of apprentices yet with 20 recruited across our Falmouth and Tyne-based businesses. The intake also included two Health and Safety Apprentices who were among the first of their kind in the country.

We are now committed to recruiting 20 new apprentices each year and are currently taking applications for apprenticeships in electrical engineering, marine and mechanical engineering, machining and fabrication and welding steel and pipe. 

Presently Apprenticeships are available in Falmouth to anyone aged 16 and over.

“Our management team is committed to building a sustainable future for A&P and our apprentices play a significant role in developing our business in the future.

At A&P we want our apprentices to grow in stature, learn from our current employees and build their lives upon a work ethic that promotes a good team ethos. The development of highly skilled trades people has been a major contributor to obtaining the high level of credibility A&P has within the ship repair industry.”
