While on this apprenticeship, you can expect on-the-job training and the kind of practical experience you simply can't get on campus.

During Year one: You'll be in full-time residential study at the National College for Nuclear (staying there is optional and dependent on where you reside at the moment), completing a foundation year in engineering including both academic and practical learning. You'll undertake foundation training courses and complete inductions and orientations at your EDF Energy base location.

Years two and three: Your time will be split between your studies and on the job learning at your EDF Energy location. You'll complete three, four-week blocks of residential study and will then have the opportunity to develop and build on these in your workplace.

Year four: You'll spend most of your time at your EDF Energy location, while continuing studies through long-distance learning. The final stage of your apprenticeship will involve you completing a significant work-based project that will be required as evidence of completion and qualification for the degree apprenticeship award. As well as all the support you need, you'll also enjoy plenty of opportunities to get involved in meaningful and challenging work once your studies are underway.
