EDM launches apprenticeship program for young engineers

EDM has launched a new apprenticeship scheme for young engineers between the ages of 16 and 18, the company said.

The five apprentices will spend their first year full time at Oldham Training Centre (OTC) working toward an NVQ Level 2 in electrical and mechanical engineering. In their second year the apprentices will spend four days per week at EDM doing on-the-job training with one day per week spent at OTC to gain an NVQ Level three. Years three and four will involve study toward a Level 3 technical certificate with a view to continuing in year five to achieve an HNC or degree in electrical and mechanical engineering.

EDM is a provider of training simulators to the civil aviation and defense sectors.
