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.
Our specialist technical Apprenticeships for NDT include:
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.
