Would you like an Apprenticeship with a Company that prides itself on Innovation, Sustainability and Manufacturing Excellence? Are you looking to learn through a mix of study and hands-on experience? If the answer is yes, read on to find out more about our Level 3 Process Engineering Apprenticeship.
What you will do in your working day
A typical day on site starts with a shift handover and briefing to bring you up to speed with your priorities for the day. You then work across various areas of the factory monitoring plant equipment, reviewing laboratory data and making adjustments to the process of making sugar as required. With the support of your manager, you will need to use your technical knowledge gained at college to make decisions, solve problems and carry out routine inspections and maintenance tasks.
The training you will be getting
You will gain Level 3 City & Guilds qualification in Process Technology from studying with our training provider, as well as various British Sugar internal and industry related courses to help you in your development e.g. Entry into Confined Spaces.
We will develop your communications skills, problem solving and team working skills throughout the scheme using coaches and mentoring sessions, as well as through an Outward Bound programme in the Lake District.
What to expect at the end of your apprenticeship
On successful completion of the scheme you will become a qualified shift Technician where you will work both individually and as part of a manufacturing team. The factory operations are large scale fast moving process plants where every day is different, they operate 24/7 and are controlled by the very latest sophisticated control systems. You will become an integral part of a team monitoring and operating the plant, processing the sugar beet crop to produce products such as sugar, animal feeds, bio gas, and bio-ethanol.
