Every year we look for committed, hardworking and confident young people who have a strong interest in engineering. Our 3-4 year apprenticeship framework offers a very competitive pay package, on the job learning and a nationally recognised qualification. We work closely with Bridgwater College to offer a range of training programs bespoke to each apprentice depending on their chosen work path.

If you are expecting grades 4-9 at GCSE, or are currently studying at college we would love to hear from you.

2016 Apprentices

“The CME apprenticeship scheme is excellent. I attend college one day a week and spend the other four working in the fitting shop. Working alongside skilled and experienced engineers has really brought learning to life for me. It is the best decision I could have made.”

(Connor Moon, Third year apprentice)
