Engineering Apprenticeships

There is huge demand for engineering skills across the globe so a career in this sector offers excellent employment opportunities, and high potential earning. New developments in technologies mean that the world is constantly evolving and engineers are at the heart of it. Safer travel, drone deliveries, communication, product improvements, greener energy, advanced machines, robots – the list is endless and so are the opportunities.

You’ll benefit from our state-of-the-art iSTEM Centre which provides outstanding teaching facilities and equipment including a 6-seater Piper Aztec aircraft, small scale wind tunnel, CNC machines, welding pods, electronic labs and computer suites (a time-lapse video of iSTEM being built is below)

Below you’ll find an introduction to iSTEM and Engineering from our iSTEM Head of School, Mark Knight.

Leyland Trucks are Recruiting! Preston’s College is proud to work in partnership with Leyland Trucks Ltd and last year we awarded Leyland Trucks with ‘Exceptional Employer’ status in our annual Employer Awards for their outstanding contribution to improving learner experience and supporting the College to shape the curriculum.

Mark Knight, Head of School of Automotive Technologies says: “Leyland Trucks are one of our large scale partners and demonstrate the forward planning needed to drive the regional economy forward. Over the past few years, Leyland Trucks have been at the forefront of investing in people. They have invested heavily in the locals of Lancashire to help provide stepping stones to potential engineers and automotive technicians of all ages through a steady stream of employment opportunities, apprenticeships and work industry placements.”
