What is an Apprenticeship?

At Capula we are committed to ‘growing our own’ and attracting, developing and retaining engineers of the future.

An apprenticeship combines academic study with practical experience at work, to gain a nationally recognised qualification, without the student debt.

What do we offer?

We offer fully funded Apprenticeships at Level 3 and Higher Apprenticeships at Level 4 and 6, taking between two and five years to complete. We offer apprenticeships in both digital and engineering disciplines.

Our programmes provide apprentices with real roles and responsibilities and support from experts across our business. We have teamed up with both Newcastle and Stafford College Group (NSCG) and Staffordshire University, where our Apprentices will spend their time studying, alongside putting this learning into practice within our business.
