Power Engineering Apprenticeship Programme

This programme combines technical skills training and, academic study within our training centres and college with work-based learning in our operational Districts, with ongoing assessment.


“I went to Uni and was with a contractor at ScottishPower after that, but I wasn’t learning much. I spoke to a few people here and then applied for the Apprenticeship Programme. Now I’m studying for a practical qualification and I get to do the day job as well, and that’s something that really appeals to me.”
