The LDE UTC is a registered apprenticeship training provider developing industry relevant programmes in collaboration with regional and national employers. Our programmes offer recognised qualifications which equip apprentices for their job and for progression in their chosen career. Apprenticeships combine on-the-job and off-the-job training and we work closely with our employer partners to ensure apprentices develop the Knowledge, Skills and Behaviours required to achieve their chosen apprenticeship standard. By achieving this will then enable them to work in a range of engineering and civil engineering roles.

With one intake per year (September), our provision includes one day a week (term time) day release where apprentices study their chosen course in College with a varied program of off the job content in collaboration with our Industry partners and the ICE, and other relevant bodies.

We incorporate innovative e-learning during College closure to ensure apprenticeship provision is uninterrupted. In addition, we have a team of highly experienced work-based learning assessors to visit and assess apprentices in the work place.
