The apprenticeship scheme.
The FGP Apprenticeship scheme is a 4 year Indentured scheme, comprising of both competence and knowledge requirements. Following on from their first year Apprentices will be required to attend college 1 day a week, and train for 4 days a week on the job.
During their first year the Apprentices spend time in our dedicated apprentice training school. the Apprentice Master will take apprentices through many disciplines including hand skills and manual machining. These tasks provide a solid platform to be built on alongside the technical knowledge elements gained in partnership with providers such as Yeovil and Weymouth College. Apprentices also spend time within all sections of the manufacturing facility during their first three years in order to build on their knowledge of drawings, machining techniques, full product processes and much more.
By Year 4 apprentices will have covered all sections thoroughly and will be asked to decide on the final preferred skill, in which to embark on fully during their final year.
