To become an apprentice in Ireland, you must be hired by an employer. Apprenticeship employers are formally approved by SOLAS in advance of employing apprentices. Apprentices get a formal contract of employment as part of their apprenticeship. To find an apprenticeship, you can search apprenticeship vacancies at apprenticeship.ie/career-seekers/jobs. Here, you can search for vacancies by location and by apprenticeship type. Your local Education and Training Board may hold details of employers seeking to employ an apprentice.
By registering for this course at GMIT, you are agreeing to your data (i.e. apprentice name, programme title, status on programme, attendance, assessment/exam marks) being shared with the relevant staff and trainers within your company, Ibec Consortium Lead, GMIT and Solas to facilitate this Higher Certificate in Engineering in Manufacturing (Apprenticeship) Level 6.
