If so and you want employment which offers a good salary, then apprenticeships with Gateshead Council are for you.

We are currently looking for an enthusiastic person to join our Housing, Compliance and Traded Services team as a Heating Engineer Apprentice.
As a Heating Engineer apprentice, you will develop skills, knowledge and experience in all aspects of installing, repairing and maintaining the domestic/commercial, heating/plumbing systems and appliances within Gateshead Council building stock.

The apprenticeship consists of attending college to gain appropriate trade qualifications and functional skills and doing practical work on site to ensure you gain the skills, knowledge and experience to become a fully qualified heating engineer.
If you are interested in this apprenticeship you must have or expect to obtain 5 GSCEs at Grade C or above (level 4-9) including English and Maths, a full driving licence (or access to mobility support) or a commitment to acquire full driving license within 2 years of appointment at own expense.

No experience is needed but you will need to have an interest in heating engineering and be self motivated with good communication skills, the ability to work as part of a team and to follow instructions.
As part of this apprenticeship you will be expected to attend Hartlepool College one day a week (term time only).

If successful, we'll support you to successfully become a highly skilled employee within four years.

The post is 37 hours per week, fixed term for 4 years.
