Apprentices wanted for Heysham Power Stations

HEYSHAM power stations have started their search for apprentices to join the company’s renowned training scheme – but applications must be in by January 6

The sites have a great track record for training its apprentices, with the first two years of the four-year programme spent at Bridgwater College, home to the National College for Nuclear. At the college Heysham’s new recruits will join apprentices from other EDF Energy power stations.

The apprentices will learn basic engineering skills in their first year, before specialising in their trade in the second year. 

They will also get opportunities to develop their ‘life skills’ as part of the apprenticeship programme before completing the final two years back at Heysham power station.

As the training takes just a few miles from the new build site at Hinkley Point C the apprentices will be able to see the UK’s newest nuclear station being constructed but will also get a chance to visit both Hinkley Point A and B, sites as part of the training programme.

Recruitment for Heysham’s apprentice programme can be found on
