Gas engineering apprenticeship starting soon

Are you thinking of taking on an apprentice but worried you’ve missed out this academic year? We understand that employers may want to start their apprentices outside of usual academic periods and so we have a brand new gas apprenticeship course starting in November 2019.

The apprenticeship will be delivered via our Greater Manchester SkillCentre and we offer a free minibus service around Greater Manchester for easy access for our apprentices. The apprenticeship will be on a day-release basis where apprentices will come into the SkillCentre one day a week to train.

The apprenticeship will cover:

  • Working Safely-COSHH, manual handling, working at heights, risk assessments
  • Safe decommission of gas appliances, inclusive of tightness testing and purging
  • Design, install and commission gas pipework systems
  • Safe service/installation and commission of gas appliances
  • The installation, commission and safety aspects of hot water systems for domestic use in accordance with UK building regulations (including unvented) and more

Available incentives
£1,000 incentive for 16-18 year old apprentices

The Education and Skills Funding Agency have put an incentive in place for any employer that recruits an apprentice aged 16-18 years old. Employers will be given £1,000 in two instalments - £500 after three months of the apprentice being on programme and £500 is paid 365 days from the apprentice starting.

Funding for 16-18 year old apprentices

There are no costs to employ a 16-18 year old apprentice. The apprenticeship is fully-funded - all you will need to pay for is the apprentice's wage.

Funding for apprentices aged 19 and over

From 1st April 2019, the government will pay 95% towards the apprenticeship fees, meaning you will only need to pay £1,350 towards the £27,000 apprenticeship.
