Advanced Apprenticeship

The Doosan Babcock Apprenticeship scheme is programmed over a 36 month period and leads to a Level 3 Diploma in Welding, Erecting, Pipefitting or Project Control. In addition during the 36 month period you will also complete a Certificate in Supporting Engineering activities or Supporting Project Control activities.

Each year approximately 85 Advanced Apprentices join the scheme and undertake a structured training programme. All off-the-job training is delivered in an environment which prepares Apprentices for their site placement.

The scheme consists of three main elements:

  • Trade specific training delivered at Doosan Babcock Limited, Training Department, Tipton, West Midlands, where you will learn the skills and underpinning knowledge required for site placement. Training will be approximately 38 weeks (including block release to college).
  • Two or three week block release study at Selby or Hull. Project Control Apprentices are based at Warwick College.
  • On-the-job training on site at various locations (mainly power stations) around the UK.

We run schemes for four separate "trades"


Steel Erector:

Project Control:


You can apply to be considered for more than one trade.

If you have gained GCSE Grade C (or above) or Standard Grade 3 (Scotland) or above in English Language, Maths or Information & Communications Technology (ICT), coupled with enthusiasm, commitment and flexibility you could be eligible to gain a placement on our Advanced Apprenticeship Scheme.

"This apprenticeship scheme recognises peoples abilities and qualities and builds on them to turn an apprentice into a skilled tradesman. The quality of training I have received has been to the highest level from experienced trade people willing to share their knowledge with me. The company offers many opportunities, it is a brilliant building block to those that want a great career."
