Drinks Dispensing Apprenticeships

If you want to work in the drinks dispense industry, the UK’s first drinks dispense technician apprenticeship is a great way to get on the career ladder. 

Developed in partnership with brewers and drinks manufacturers across the country, the structured programme will teach you the skills and knowledge you need to be able to installmaintain and repair a range of complex drinks dispensing equipment in pubs, clubs, bars, hotels, theatres, leisure centres and stadiums.  

The programme covers a wide range of tasks and you will gain skills in plumbing, electrics, refrigeration, gas pressure systems and pipework, as well as fault finding, problem solving, customer service, training, product quality, time and workload management, health and safety, and industry codes of practice.  

During the apprenticeship you will combine working for an employer with studying for a level 3 engineering drinks dispense technician qualification and, because you will be doing a real job for a real employer, you’ll get paid too! 

Training is delivered by the college at local brewery giant Marston’s Plc’s Talent Academy in Wolverhampton on a block release basis every month and is delivered by a leader in drinks dispense installation. 

What’s more, you’ll be supported throughout your training by a college assessor who will visit you in the workplace to make sure you are meeting your targets and that both you and your employer are getting the most out of your apprenticeship. 

And, did you know that apprenticeships aren’t just for new staff? if you’re already employed in the industry and want to improve your skills and boost your promotion prospects you can benefit from apprenticeship training too – just ask your employer to email employerenquiries@wolvcoll.ac.uk and a member of the team will contact them to discuss your training further.
