Hi everyone, I'm currently an adult student, studying for a diploma in electrical installations. And my next goal is a hnc in electrical engineering, hopefully concentrating more on maintenance and repairs than anything else.

I've done some research on adult apprenticeships, but not found a website that seems dedicated to adults.

Could anyone help point me in the right direction? Or have any suggestions on where I can look?

We have an apprenticeship scheme where I work now, but they seem unwilling so far to consider older applicants.

Any help or advice would be greatly appreciated.

Thank you,
Lee.

Best thing to do may be to write to employers explaining exactly what you after from an employer and what you can bring to them.

If you refer to industrial attachment for final year then your school should be able to help. If looking for apprenticeship after graduating then just write to the prospective employer but apprenticeship is very rare nowadays. Some good company will provide training or at least on the job training. Otherwise mostly don't provide any form of training.

I have just completed an FdEng in Electrical Power Engineering and over 85% of the class worked for SSE or National Grid. (I fell into the 15% that didn't).

I know they where on a training programme for their companies.
