Why chose an apprenticeship in the energy and utilities sector?
Average salaries while in training for most energy and utilities-related apprenticeships are higher than the average salary of all apprentices (£12,634 per year across all UK sectors). Furthermore, the retention and continued employment of energy and utility apprentices is higher than average.
95% of completers of Electricity Industry apprenticeships are still with their employer five years after completing their training, compared to 88% of all private sector apprentices.*

All apprenticeships include elements of on-the-job and off-the-job training, leading to industry-recognised standards or qualifications. There’ll be all kinds of ground-breaking projects to tackle – perhaps helping to build wind farms or working towards net zero carbon.
