Wyko is tackling the engineering skill shortage with an increased intake for its 2008 apprenticeship and training schemes.

Over a period of two years, candidates enrolled on the Commercial Training Management Training Programme, spend time in all of the main areas of the company’s business. Service centre engineers spend their two years undertaking in-house training and participating in a day release scheme.

The Electro Mechanical Engineering Apprentice scheme is a four-year formal apprenticeship and leads to professional engineering body accreditation. It incorporates both college training and on-the-job experience. The Institute of Engineering and Technology supports the scheme.

‘We recognise that the future success of our company, and indeed of the UK manufacturing industry as a whole depends on the ready availability of skilled and qualified engineers,’ said Peter Walker, group learning and development officer at Wyko.

‘And we are committed to making the investment needed to help suitable candidates develop their skills and expertise.’
