Apprenticeships for

Materials Testing

Skills Training UK is a leading provider of Materials Testing Apprenticeships in the UK. Our Non-Destructive Testing (NDT) Apprenticeships won ‘Apprenticeship Programme of the Year’ at the TES FE Awards 2020.

Our unique delivery model offers an integrated training programme between the employer, specialist training provider and apprentice, making it easier and more cost-effective for employers to upskill and recruit for Materials Testing positions.

In addition, we have partnered with specialist training school Train the Painter to offer the Industrial Coatings Applicator programme.

These Apprenticeships support employers across engineering, nuclear, oil and gas, automotive and aerospace industries to deliver high-quality infrastructure and projects across the UK.

The programme is well structured, well organised and from the outset. The tutors that we work with are clearly very experienced and knowledgeable in their disciplines in NDT and Lean manufacturing principles.

    Employer Story

    Clinical Coding Apprenticeship helps to upskill and enhance careers at NHS Trust

    The programme covers strong theoretical elements of Clinical Coding such as the importance of accuracy and consistency in recording data and what we use the data for. This isn’t typically covered in the standard Clinical Coding course, mainly due to time and the intensity of the practical coding undertaking, so to have a programme that can encompass both elements and underpin the theory is invaluable.
