At Griffon Hoverwork we recognise the importance of developing new talent and therefore offer an aprenticeship scheme to those who are keen to start a long term career in engineering. Prior experience is less important than having the right aptitude and attitude, as we know we can take good people and turn them into the professional artisans that we need .
Intermediate (NVQ Level 2) and Advanced (NVQ Level 3) Apprenticeships are offered in the following areas:
- Marine Electrical
- Marine Engineering
- Marine Outfitters
- Aluminium Fabricators/Welders
- Marine Composites Technicians
- CAD Draughtsman
- Sales and marketing/Customer Service
Working in partnership with Southampton City College and Griffon Hoverwork, successful applicants will become part of an entrepreneurial team, whilst gaining practical experience from both college based and on the job development.
Entry requirements will include a minimum of 3 grade C's at GCE level including Maths and English for most roles but a minimum of 5 grade C's at GCE level including Maths and English for the CAD and sales roles.
Most apprentices will work under the supervision of others,as well as attending City College one or two days a week.
City College Marine centre is located 100 yards away from the Griffon Hoverwork site, which allows close contact and support between the college and the company.
