Job Details

As a Material Technician Apprentice at EuroTest, you’ll be involved in different tasks as no two days are the same with us. You’ll be working in a laboratory but not as you know it! Be prepared to get mucky as you get to know your materials. This won’t be a sterile environment and requires someone who’s not afraid to get stuck in.

Once you have completed your training period, you’ll have the opportunity to carry out different types of tests on concrete, soils, and aggregates, spending the majority of your time in the laboratory. Alongside this, you’ll be liaising with the site technicians  to book in samples and report results when required, as well as calibrating and maintaining the equipment allocated to you.

Company

Tiro is a leading training provider for science and technology apprenticeships.

We’ve been helping hungry apprentices to join ambitious businesses since 2005.

At Tiro, we really believe that great apprenticeships help everyone. An apprentice can re-energise their employer’s business by injecting new blood. That’s why we only work with the very best candidates.

We’re picky about the employers we’ll work with too. They have to be prepared to nurture every apprentice. That way, everyone benefits.

How does it work?

As an apprentice, you’ll work for an employer while pursuing a nationally recognised learning programme.

You’ll spend most of your working time learning the ropes in a hands-on role, with the help of colleagues and mentors. You’ll also spend a fifth of your time focused on the formal learning elements.

By the end of the programme, you’ll have developed the knowledge, skills, and behaviours you’ll need in your chosen field.

Who will support me?

Your expert Tiro tutor will lead you through the learning programme, which combines academic, practical, and technical training. This integrated learning allows you to put theory into practice, both on and off the job.

You’ll have a combination of live online training, progress reviews every ten weeks, and additional regular catch-ups. Face-to-face meetings are usually held at your workplace, with video calls in between.

Your ‘on the job’ training will be overseen by a mentor, who will make sure you are supported and developed at work.

How long will I be an apprentice?

Your apprenticeship will last between one and four years, depending on the programme.

As with most jobs, this will be subject to a probationary period where you’ll need to meet certain standards of performance, professionalism, and punctuality.

Some apprentices go on to a higher-level apprenticeship programme once they’ve qualified, so you could potentially be an apprentice for several years.
