(AWE) – Electrical Maintenance Apprenticeship

  • Company: AWE
  • Location: Aldermaston
  • Closing Date: 31-12-2022


There are numerous electrical maintenance roles at AWE such as power distribution systems installation, electrical testing and inspection, maintenance on both high and low voltage systems and work on lightning protection systems.

During your first two years, you will train in our Skills Academy, as well as attend day release at college. This is where you learn all about electrical theory, cabling and wiring infrastructure. You will then go on to individually produce around 40 small projects, where you will be involved in designing, installing, repairing, and maintaining electrical systems. Electrical apprentices are typically trained to an advanced level, and this is a three-year scheme. After 18 months you’ll leave the Academy to join the qualified trades people on site where you will receive on the job training. Typically, this will involve six separate three-month placements, which will broaden your electrical knowledge and expose you to the full spectrum of our plant and facilities. These placements can include facility engineering, electrical utilities, and design compliance, & lightning protection systems.
