ATL Transformers Champions Apprentership schemes

ATL Transformers ltd, UK Is highlighting the key role its apprenticeship scheme is playing as the company builds for the future. Over the last few months, ATL have reinstated their apprenticeship scheme and have already started to recruit apprentices on a day release to collage basis as part of its two year apprentice scheme.


We have seen great value bringing young local people into the business at ATL and many senior people at ATL started out as apprentices themselves. As a result, when we decided to restart our apprentice scheme this year we already recognized the benefit of apprentices bringing enthusiasm and fresh ideas into the business and ultimately, the company loyalty an apprenticeship creates. Apprentices are now playing an important role in our thinking around succession planning, as when we look to fill vacancies we are initially seeking to promote people up internally and create opportunities at a junior level.


For the last six months ATL has advertised its apprentice scheme through the local training group STEGTA (Salford and Trafford engineering group) based in Salford keys and has had an overwhelming response of applicants. Interested applicants are then invited to a one day Workshop, from which a team of observers selects those to be offered a two year


Apprenticeship with ATL. The apprenticeship itself is the RTA NVQ level 2 Diploma in performing engineering manufacturing operations, comprising study at a local College to achieve the Technical Certificate element, and workplace assessment by an external assessor for the NVQ element. For the first 6 months of the process the apprentices rotate roles within the business to learn different skills in each functional area, during which time ATL is able to establish where each apprentice's skills will benefit the company the most.


Interested applicants are invited to contact STEGTA direct for induction qualification to ATL.
