About the apprenticeship
The successful candidate is expected to follow a training programme fully whilst working as part of the design and fabrication teams within the group. Whilst the training programme is structured to cover all the areas, the Apprentice is required to be flexible to adapt to the group's production schedule in order to meet the deadlines for delivery of the commercial contracts.
The programme of training will include familiarisation with the processes involved in fabrication of precision optical components. This phase in their development is to give the Apprentice a basic understanding and hands on experience of the polishing and testing techniques required to fabricate bespoke precision optics within the customer's specifications and timescales.
Working as part of the design team, a programme of training will include familiarisation with the processes and software involved in the design of precision optical support systems and test structures. The goal of the training is to give the Apprentice the basic knowledge required to design, develop and implement precision optical support systems within the customer's specifications and timescales.
As part of the training programme, the Apprentice will be mentored & guided by different members of staff to cover their areas of expertise; ensuring all aspects of precision optical component & systems design, process plans, engineering drawings, specifications required to deliver leading edge, low volume, high technology systems.
