As part of the University of Sheffield’s Advanced Manufacturing Research Centre (AMRC), our apprentices are perfectly placed to draw on the experience of an elite Russell Group university and the resources of a world leading research and innovation organisation, whose 300-plus partners include global powerhouses like Boeing, Rolls-Royce, McLaren and Airbus.

With the support of industry, the university and the AMRC, we have developed a flexible portfolio of high quality apprenticeships and degree apprenticeships that enable our students to earn as they learn, gaining nationally recognised qualifications to graduate level without the debt associated with conventional higher education. We provide them with the foundations for a rewarding career in some of the world’s most innovative industries.

Here are six good reasons for choosing an AMRC Training Centre apprenticeship:

Earn while you learn

Apprentices earn approximately £200 a week, but many employers offer more than this.

Relevant real-world experience

Apprenticeships ensure that you get hands-on experience and help you to really hit the ground running with your career.

Gain nationally recognised qualifications

We only offer nationally recognised qualifications that are acknowledged and respected by employers across the world.

No debt from student loans

Your employer pays for you to gain your qualification so you won’t be weighed down by student debt.

Qualifications for all levels

We offer a clear progression route, from an Advanced Apprenticeship (Level 3) through to Degree (Level 6). This means we can help you at all stages of your career, and whether you come to us from school or college, or are looking to take the next steps within your company, we have a course to suit your needs.

We support you throughout your apprenticeship

Our dedicated team will support you throughout your apprenticeship journey, from finding the right employer and job through to visiting you in company, all backed by the University of Sheffield and the AMRC.
