Culham Centre for Fusion Energy's Advanced Apprenticeship Scheme is a great way for young people to get into a technical career in engineering.
Usually every year we select apprentice engineering technicians to undergo a four-year training programme based at Culham and at a local college. This scheme is designed to develop technical and academic abilities and personal qualities. Completing the programme results in a certificate of Advanced Apprenticeship, a complementary academic qualification, registration as an EngTech by either Institution of Mechanical Engineers or the Institution of Engineering and Technology and a head start for a future career.

Apprentice Appreciation Week
We are offering a limited number of places on the annual 'Apprentice Appreciation Week' (AAW), which gives an insight into the company business and what it could be like working as an Apprentice Technician.
Students are supervised by fully trained technicians and learn different engineering skills by hands-on experience of some of the fundamental tasks undertaken by technicians at Culham.
Students applying for a place on this scheme should be self-motivated and enjoy problem-solving, have an aptitude for mechanical or electrical tasks and be seriously considering a career in engineering at technician level.
To apply for a place on the Apprentice Appreciation Week, please forward, either by email or via post, an up-to-date CV and covering letter expressing your interest in obtaining a place on the AAW, before the closing date of Friday 28 February 2014.
Please send your application to: Mrs. Anna Barns, Apprentice Training, Culham Centre for Fusion Energy, Culham Science Centre, Building J20/0/55, Abingdon, Oxon OX14 1NQ. Or email: email@example.com.
