2012 apprenticeship scheme opens at Nissan Sunderland plant
Nissan has announced that 25 new apprenticeships will be taken on at its Sunderland plant on its Trainee Maintenance Technician scheme. Announced to coincide with National Apprenticeship Week, these 25 posts will take the number of apprentices taken on at the plant to 1,073 in its 26-year history.
The 25 new trainees will become part of the maintenance team who maintain the production facilities at the plant.
The five-year Trainee Maintenance Technician scheme combines theoretical and practical skills, giving successful applicants the chance to work towards nationally recognised qualifications through on-the-job and academic training.
The first year of the scheme is spent completing off-the-job-training with Gateshead College. The remaining 4 years are spent in the plant with day release at college.
As well as receiving the skills and knowledge they will require for their job, the new apprentices will study towards nationally recognised qualifications developed with NA College and Gateshead College.
These include NVQ Level 2 in Performing Engineering Operations; NVQ Level 3 Engineered Systems; Award in Industrial Environmental Awareness; Extended Certificate in Engineering (Level 2), Extended Diploma in Engineering (Level 3) and Foundation Degree in Maintenance Engineering.
Nissan Sunderland Plant engineering director, Richard Ebrahim, who started his own career as an apprentice, said: "We are proud to support apprenticeships and would like to see more companies in our region doing so.
"Hiring apprentices is a tried and tested way of investing in the future of the company. It supports the development of future managers and directors, giving our staff the practical skills and academic qualifications they will need for a successful career.
"We are looking for ambitious, intelligent people with a desire to learn and work hard. In return they are guaranteed a challenging and rewarding career at a company that is at the forefront of the UK manufacturing industry."
