Rockwell Automation is supporting the drive to recruit new talent into the UK engineering sector by extending its new Advanced Apprentices in Engineering programme with the announcement of more posts starting in September 2011. The continuing relationship with Milton Keynes College to offer another two new apprenticeships follows the successful intake of three during 2010.
This opportunity will provide successful applicants with a route to a university education while simultaneously earning a wage and benefiting from a combination of hands-on training at Rockwell Automation and study at the college. The aim is for successful apprentices to either specialise as commercial engineers or move into technical client account management.
Dominic Molloy, UK Sales Director at Rockwell Automation, comments: "We are very proud of the fact that several of our senior business leaders started as apprentices. This gives apprentices who join Rockwell Automation an added advantage with access to mentors who will guide students as they start out in this exciting profession. Our company helps manufacturers improve their productivity, and our excellent engineers help our customers to achieve a competitive advantage. They are part of a highly respected and well rewarded profession. We are proud to be supporting the local community, the wider community and National Apprentices Week by creating these employment opportunities.'
