Apprenticeships

Apprentices are our future, so we invest in them, we are proud of having trained over 1,600 apprentices across various trades to date.

An apprenticeship scheme with FES provides individuals with an opportunity to work and learn with our work-based training programmes, the majority of the training is provided ‘on the job’ with the remainder provided by local colleges and our in-house Training Academy.

FES Group provides apprentice opportunities across various trades, if you are interested in becoming an apprentice there are pre-employment assessment tests for certain roles that you will have to sit and pass, prior to applications being considered.

Our purpose built in house training academy features a number of specially designed training booths equipped for a range of trades, enabling our Training Manager and his team to offer additional training and explanation of techniques for any apprentice.
