A&P Group, one of the largest commercial ship repair and conversion specialists in the UK, is recruiting its next intake of apprentices who will benefit from first class training and the prospect of a long career in the company.

Apprenticeship opportunities are available at A&P Tyne and A&P Falmouth, across a number of departments including marine engineering, welding, plating and health and safety.

The scheme is open to anyone age 16 or over, with A&P welcoming applications from all ages.

Since the scheme was launched in 2008, A&P Group has trained more than 100 apprentices in specialist skills such as engineering, welding, procurement and health and safety and set them on the path for future success. A&P recruits at least 20 apprentices each year.

David McGinley, Chief Executive Officer, said: “Our management team is committed to building a sustainable future for A&P, and our apprentices play a significant role in developing our business in the future.

“At A&P we want our apprentices to grow in stature, learn from our current employees and build their lives upon a work ethic that promotes a good team ethos. The development of highly skilled trades people has been a major contributor to obtaining the high level of credibility A&P has within the ship repair industry.”

The vast majority of our apprentices have gone straight into full-time employment and many have been able to progress their careers with A&P Group as well as gain further qualifications.

If you are aged 16 and over and want to take the first step to becoming an A&P apprentice, please visit www.ap-group.co.uk/apprenticeships.
