About the Maintenance and Operations Engineering Technician Apprenticeship

This is a four-year programme that focuses on the hands-on skills required to maintain EDF power stations. During the scheme, you’ll develop specialist skills to work in either the Mechanical and Heavy Electrical team, or the Light Electrical and Control & Instrumentation team.

In the first two years of the programme you’ll be based at the National College for Nuclear, delivered through Bridgwater and Taunton College, Somerset. EDF can provide you with accommodation here if you do not live locally.

You’ll have access to state-of-the-art nuclear training facilities including a virtual reality environment, a reactor simulator, computer-equipped training rooms, recreation and collaboration spaces, sports facilities and student accommodation. It’s here that you’ll get your introduction to engineering and develop a strong skills foundation.

You’ll then be based at one of EDFs power stations: HPC, Sizewell B, Torness, Heysham 2, Hartlepool, Heysham 1 or Dungeness.
