We think that one of the best ways for you to find out more about apprecticeships at Perkins is to hear from the people who have recently been apprentices.
Since starting I have gained knowledge of how the Perkins 4000 series is built, so far I’ve spent time in machining, assembly and quality, which has given me a great insight into what is involved in building an engine however, I know there is a lot still to learn.Learn more
I have always learned best when I am hands-on with a task. Therefore an apprenticeship was perfect for me as it allowed me to gain my qualifications, whilst applying my skills learned in college when at work. I can relate college work to projects within the company to give myself a greater understanding of the modules being covered.Learn more
Since starting I have been two days at college learning Level 2 City and Guilds and a Level 2 NVQ in engineering, which I’m thoroughly enjoying. At Perkins I have been on working with the quality assurance department, the Vee Crankcase Machining and on the Assembly Line.Learn more
