Turn your curiosity into reality
HMGCC is a centre of technical excellence, where careers are unique in the electronics field. From our hi-tech facilities, we craft, design and create one-off products that push technology to the limits. It’s why we can offer apprenticeships unlike any other. You’ll have the opportunity to get involved in the whole process, and turn your tech curiosities into world-leading reality.
About the programme
Our three-year Advanced Electronic Engineering apprenticeship is designed to give you the best start to your career. Throughout the programme, your time will be split between a local college – where you’ll complete an academic qualification – and on-the-job training at HMGCC. That way, you’ll build a solid foundation of practical skills and technical knowledge. In fact, you’ll receive blended learning through classroom training, mentored work placements, and customer projects. And, to top it off, we’ll even fund your membership with a professional organisation, such as the Institution of Engineering and Technology.
Working alongside our team of experts, you’ll pick up the breadth and depth of experience needed to become a vital part of our future. We’ll offer you a positive and creative work environment, as well as all the tools and training to develop into the best you can be. By the end of it, you’ll have gained an NVQ in Engineering Technical Support Level 3 Extended Diploma. And, depending on your start point, you’ll achieve either a BTEC Level 3 Diploma in Engineering, or a BTEC Level 4 HNC in Electrical and Electronic Engineering.
If you’re successful, you’ll be offered a chance to join one of our Electronics teams as a permanent Electronics Technician. But your development won’t end there. We’ll continue to invest in your skills and knowledge. And you’ll benefit from being part of an organisation with boundless opportunities to progress.
You’ll come to us with five GCSEs or equivalent at Grade A* to C or 9-4 including maths, English, science, or an equivalent qualification in an engineering subject. It’s important you have a passion and natural curiosity for electronics. Not only that, you’ll be able to demonstrate this through hobbies or projects completed at home or college. While we’re not accepting applications from anyone with an existing qualification at the same or higher level in a similar subject – we will accept those who have two A Levels at C or above in maths or physics, a BTEC L3 Diploma at Merit or above (including further maths), or an equivalent L3 qualification in a related subject.
You’ll also have bags of integrity, approaching work in a professional, honest and reliable manner. You’ll enjoy working in a team, cooperating, collaborating, supporting and respecting others to ensure you can understand and achieve our goals. What will truly set you apart is your resourcefulness - using your curiosity to fuel your passion for, and knowledge of, technology.
