Konecranes global challenge is to get the right people, with the right skills to provide a valuable service for our customers. 100% of our UK Apprentices have gained permanent employment in Konecranes, after they have successfully completed the Apprentice Programme.
Our UK Apprentice Programme works in partnership with local colleges to train our Apprentices over a 3-year period. Some of our best Technicians and current Senior Managers have come through this programme. Training will be in accordance with the Konecranes Apprentice Training Programme.
First year apprentices will attend the local college for off-the-job training for a year and subsequent training will be through day release in accordance with the Company's Apprentice Training Programme. You will also attend your local branch during college holidays to help gain further understanding of our business and the nature of the work carried out.
At the end of the first year there will be a month long internal training programme at our UK Training Centre.
On completion of the training and subject to consideration of ability, aptitude and successful college results it is expected that you will qualify as a Service Technician, with an NVQ Level 2 & 3 in Electrical Engineering and you will be offered a permanent position in the Company. Subject to performance and aspiration, there will be the option to complete a 4th year to undertake a BTEC Higher National Certificate in electrical and electronic engineering.
Paid day or block release for attendance at a local College will be granted for the duration of the apprenticeship, subject to satisfactory results and attendance. The normal period of training is three years.
