Engineering Craft Apprenticeships

Our accredited apprenticeship programme offers you the opportunity to gain new skills and qualifications and will set you on the path to a long term rewarding career, where you’ll have the opportunity to really make a difference.

We're one of the most diverse energy companies in the industry, with a range of different businesses serving different purposes. We have opportunities for you to join as an Apprentice in Mechanical or Electrical Contracting, as an Engineer in our Generation & Renewables business and as a Lines Person, Jointer or Electrical Fitter in our Power Systems business.

Whichever Apprenticeship you choose, you'll have the opportunity to achieve a Modern Apprenticeship qualification and a City & Guilds Technical Certificate (or SVQ in Scotland). You will learn new skills that will help you build a successful career in the industry and the opportunity to forge a career at SSE beyond your Apprenticeship.

Most of our Apprenticeships take four years to complete and you may have to live away from home for short periods of time. The majority of apprentices attend college on a block release arrangement which helps you progress more quickly and gives you valuable support.
