Apprenticeships

Apprenticeship award

Culham's Advanced Apprenticeship Scheme is a great way for young people to get into a technical career in engineering.

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.

Oxford Advanced Skills

The Culham apprenticeship scheme is complemented by a new training centre at the site – Oxford Advanced Skills. Opened in 2016, Oxford Advanced Skills is a partnership between the UK Atomic Energy Authority and the Science & Technology Facilities Council to offer apprenticeship training for hi-tech businesses in the Thames Valley. Training is provided by JTL and the centre will eventually train up to 125 young people a year at Culham.
