Polymer Processing Apprenticeships

If you want to work in the manufacturing industry, doing an apprenticeship is a great way to kick start your future career. 

Whether you want to be a Lean manufacturing operative – specialising in inspection and quality, logistics and materials, production and assembly or production processing – or a science manufacturing technician, you will develop essential skills required by the sector which will lead to great employment opportunities in the future. 

During your apprenticeship you’ll combine working for an employer with studying at college – usually attending once a week – and, because you’ll be doing a real job for a real employer, you’ll get paid too! 

In the workplace you’ll learn on-the-job by working alongside existing experienced staff, and when you’re in college you’ll be taught by qualified tutors who have worked in the industry themselves. 

You’ll train at our specialist Polymer Training Innovation Centre, in Telford and be trained by a team of experienced business improvement specialists who have worked in the manufacturing industry themselves. 

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. 

You’ll do your training in our fully operational motor vehicle garage on the Paget Road campus which has a range of different vehicles for you to work on and is equipped with an open-plan mechanical workshop, spray booths and paint rooms, fabrication and welding workshops, air conditioning and electrical repair areas.   

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. 

Apprenticeship vacancies are being added to our website all the time – take a look at the latest opportunities here
