First Project Controls Apprenticeship in the North West

November 14, 2014

After eight months of planning and partnership with the ECITB ten new apprentices have been recruited on the first ECITB Project Controls Apprenticeship to be run in the North West of England.

This course is for Existing Project Control Engineers as well as new entrants to the field and trains learners in the development of project plans, schedules, estimates and budgets. It also teaches vital employability skills, Information Technology in project control and the creation of effective project control working relationships. The course is designed to be flexible so that the training is accessible regardless of company size.

Shane Forth, Head of Project Controls at AMEC, one of the supporting employers said;

“I am absolutely delighted to celebrate the launch of the first Project Controls Advanced Apprenticeship programme in the North West and welcome the first cohort of young people to the start of what I know will be very exciting, successful and rewarding careers.

“I have witnessed a tremendous collaborative effort between the ECITB, NSAN, Training 2000 and the five leading employers that have committed to the programme.  I’m also very pleased that other employers are showing strong interest.”

New Apprentice Natasha Greenbury of Bilfinger Industrial Services Ltd said:

“I applied last year whilst travelling in Australia so was really pleased to be offered an Apprenticeship. Having come from a family of Engineers I’m really looking forward to getting started. I’m sure I am going to enjoy it!”

The Apprentices will spend the next twelve months at our cutting-edge site in Blackburn learning basic craft related skills and planning and costing a simulated project before returning to their respective employers to complete the remainder of their Level 3 Diploma in Project Controls.
