EDF Chemistry Apprenticeship

During the course of this 4-year Degree Apprenticeship, you’ll learn from our industry-leading experts and gain valuable experience, whilst studying for a BSc Degree in Chemistry. You can expect on-the-job training and the kind of practical experience you simply can't get on campus.

During the course of this 4-year Degree Apprenticeship, you'll follow the Level 6 Laboratory Scientist Apprenticeship Standard and your time will be split between your studies and on the job learning at your EDF location. You’ll spend 20 days at the university and the rest of the time will be 80% work onsite and 20% studying. 

As well as all the support you need, you’ll also enjoy plenty of opportunities to get involved in meaningful and challenging work once your studies are underway. That doesn’t mean you’ll have too much on your plate. You’ll have to put a lot of work in to manage your studies and your day-to-day duties but as you’ll be on block release from work when you’re studying, we can make sure we manage your workload accordingly.

Where you'll be based
During the apprenticeship you will be working within the Chemistry team at Sizewell B Power Station.  Your time will be split between your EDF workplace and Manchester Metropolitan University.

5 GCSE’s Grade 4 or above including English, Maths and a Science Subject
Ability to demonstrate enthusiasm for engineering in the nuclear industry
Clear ambition to develop an a career within EDF
Ability to engage people at all levels and work within a team

Where we could take you
Once you’ve completed the scheme, you’ll have both academic qualifications and years of experience within EDF. That means you’ll be in the best possible position to continue your career. The future is yours for the taking!
