Apprenticeships

Award winning and the most sought after Apprenticeship programme in our industry.

We’re very proud of our award winning Apprenticeship programme. We’re pleased to say that it’s one of the most successful and sought after programmes in the hire industry, and we typically invest over £1 million each year in the recruitment and training of our Apprentices. The majority of A-Plant Apprentices follow our three-year Plant Maintenance Apprenticeship programme and we also offer Apprenticeships across many other disciplines such as Drivers, Customer Service, Human Resources, Finance and Credit Control.

Apprentices play a key role at A-Plant and, in 2014, the company won the overall Apprentice Large Employer of the Year Award across the whole of Great Britain, at the CITB Managing Agency Apprentice Awards. Our Apprentices have also won national accolades in the Construction Plant Hire Association’s (CPA) Stars of the Future programme, and we are keen to recruit both male and female Apprentices.

“My advice for somebody considering an Apprenticeship would be that you have to be motivated, a team player, and be able to work and adapt to the company’s needs. Also, that it is hard work, it isn’t easy and sometimes really challenging, but in a rewarding way. If given the opportunity, definitely take it - it will be one of the best decisions you make.”

“The Apprenticeship programme has been extremely valuable in gearing our business up for the future. As well as giving us a pool of skilled employees who have a good understanding of A-Plant’s values and systems, the whole experience has provided worthwhile employment and progression opportunities for people across the UK.”

Bob Harper, Head of Training

"Tougher times favour those with a skill or trade and we have adopted a long-term view by recruiting more Apprentices in our quest to attract and retain the best people in our industry. Our key objective is to have a fully qualified and competent workforce and our Apprentice Academy plays a key role in helping us achieve this. Our Apprenticeship schemes are a fantastic route to a long and fruitful career with A-Plant, allowing people to earn as they learn.”
