Future prospects It is intended that the apprenticeship would then lead on to a degree leading to an accredited professional Engineering Position. Things to consider The factory is located on the outskirts of Trowbridge and the candidate must make their own way to work and to Wiltshire College in Chippenham for the day release element of the apprenticeship. Therefore a driving licence is desirable. A select number of candidates will be asked to attend at least 3 work experience days over 3 weeks to ascertain if they are suitable for the position and the position is suitable for them before being employed. The hourly rate stated is the initial starting rate and incremental pay increases may be awarded based on performance.
