Futureproof your workforce

Get ahead of the competition with an OAS advanced manufacturing apprentice.

The OAS Level 3 Advanced Apprenticeship Programme provides the most advanced engineering apprentice training to support businesses based in and around Oxfordshire, the Thames Valley and the surrounding areas, all delivered at the OAS Training Centre at UKAEA Culham.

Our programme includes all the core requirements of an apprenticeship and exposure to disruptive technologies and new ways of working, empowering learners to help accelerate innovation when they return to their employers. An ambitious enrichment programme also supports development of the ‘soft skills’ they’ll need for professional and personal success.

For our employer partners, apprenticeships provide a cost-effective way to attract enthusiastic, motivated, young talent with the skills their business needs for the future, supporting internal progression and succession planning.

Through our partnership with MTC Apprenticeships and Lloyds Bank, we are also able to support local SMEs with additional guidance to access crucial financial and practical support that will enable you to find, recruit and upskill the best new talent for your business’s future.

SME support service in partnership with Lloyds Bank

Apprenticeships provide a cost-effective way for businesses to attract enthusiastic, motivated, young talent, helping you to future proof your workforce and reinvigorate current staff.

As part of our partnership with MTC Apprenticeships and Lloyds Bank, we have launched the brand new MTC SME Support Service. We are working together to provide extra support to SMEs in the local area across five schemes specifically designed to overcome common SME challenges associated with apprenticeships, workforce upskilling, and productivity.
