Celebrating National Apprenticeship Week

We are proud to be celebrating National Apprenticeship Week at Briggs of Burton!

This week, we will be celebrating our talented Craft & Technical Apprentices who are based at our Global Technical Centre in Burton on Trent. Every year, we offer several Craft and Technical apprenticeship positions giving our apprentices the opportunity to build valuable Skills for Life.

Craft apprentices perform engineering operations, welding and fabrication, and support towards a Diploma or BTEC through College attendance. Technical apprentices learn engineering skills including Computer Aided Design (CAD), process, mechanical, and electrical engineering, and project management experience.

They all play an instrumental role in helping us to design, build and engineer the world’s largest breweries, distilleries, food and pharmaceutical facilities.

Watch the short video to see our growing number of apprentices across all functions in the business.
