New “Trailblazer” Apprenticeship Programme launched

Advanced composite manufacturer Teledyne CML Composites has launched a new apprenticeship programme in association with the Engineering College, National Composites Centre (NCC) and Composites UK Trade Association.

This program is specifically designed for the Composites sector to secure the future availability of skilled personnel as the company gears up to meet long-term plans for growth.

The “Trailblazer” Apprenticeship is a 3 year programme, in which students will gain a wide and specialised knowledge of all aspects of composite manufacture and applications.

On completion of the apprenticeship, students will receive a BTec Level 3 and an NVQ Level 3 extended diploma in Composite Manufacturing Engineering.

Once candidates have completed the program, they will go through an interview process, where if selected, they will have the option to join the Teledyne CML Composites workforce.

Teledyne CML Composites is currently enjoying a period of significant growth, and with the turnover of the Wirral-based company set to double in the next two years, the apprenticeship program is seen as key to securing the necessary skills and workforce required to support this growth in the long term.

The company provide a comprehensive composites manufacturing service in advanced engineering applications, including components and assemblies for aircraft structures and systems.

John Toner, General Manager, said: “Recent success in securing a number of long term contracts has highlighted a need to put in place a resource to train skilled personnel to help us continue the plans we have to make Teledyne CML Composites a global supplier. The apprenticeship program will provide us with skilled personnel to take on new projects, but also give our current customers comfort that we have plans in place to secure long-term continuity of supply.”
