New apprenticeship scheme will provide candidates with hands-on experience on HS2’s construction programme
The 24 apprenticeships will be split across two distinct career pathways: level 2 steelworker apprenticeships and level 2 formwork apprenticeships in carpentry/joinery.
Successful candidates will be pivotal in supporting HS2’s construction programme between the Chilterns and North Warwickshire and will be provided with support from a wider team of engineers.
Jhen-Nel Swanston, skills manager at HS2, said: “Over 1,200 people have already secured an HS2 apprenticeship, and we’re delighted that 24 new candidates are set to benefit from this investment.
“Those who complete the programme will secure a nationally recognised qualification, coupled with valuable industry experience on Europe’s biggest infrastructure project.
“This is a great opportunity, which offers long-term career prospects working on HS2.”
The roles will combine study at The Skills Centre in Oxfordshire over an 18-24 month period, pending each candidate’s personal progression.
The application deadline for the apprenticeship scheme is 1 July.
