Trade Apprenticeships

Our trade apprenticeship are the ideal pathway into the technical trades within Swann Engineering Group, and present the perfect opportunity to gain vital qualifications whilst learning a trade hands-on. Swann Engineering Group has developed a strong working relationship with Colchester Institute to help train and develop our future talent.

A trade apprenticeship with Swann Engineering Group Ltd offers the opportunity to learn work- based skills and develop these through personal projects, whilst also contributing to real world output. Recent personal engineering projects have included the manufacture of items such as a helter-skelter, body armour, garden gates, and others. These projects allow our apprentices to refine their skill set in a fun and safe environment, whilst learning how our factories operate, the processes behind a market-leading engineering company, and how their future may look within the industry.

All our trade apprentices work towards a Level 3 and Level 4 Higher National Diploma, with a potential pathway to our Degree Apprenticeship scheme.
