Apprenticeships

Are you considering taking on an apprentice? We work with hundreds of employers across Norfolk and Cambridgeshire, and have compiled a list of frequently asked questions that employers ask, for your reference.

Changes to apprenticeships

It is mandatory from 1st April 2021 for all employers regardless if they are levy or non-levy to use the apprenticeship service account. The account provides the means for the college to receive the funding for the apprenticeship. The videos below will help those employers not already set up on the service.

Work Experience

We pride ourselves on making our students work-ready through our links with employers in the region. Work experience is an essential taster of the world of work. For many of our students, this will be their first opportunity to work in a real environment with adults.

We are always looking for employers who can offer work experience placements for our students so if you think you could offer a placement, please contact us on 01553 761 144.

Our Facilities

The training factory at CWA creates the perfect ‘downtime’ location for a wide range of electrical and mechanical training tasks. Part of a multi-million pound investment in engineering technology at the College of West Anglia, King’s Lynn. The reality is a dedicated facility which includes production plant with the sole function of providing ‘real’ learning and skills training. With capability to provide hands on training and assessment for line operators, single and multi-skilled engineers, in both mechanical and electrical principles, the reality is here – availability now.

The reality of our factory:

  • ‘Downtime’ is king. Time is valuable, not expensive
  • Machine principles are understood
  • Maintenance skills are developed
  • Faults are identified, causes analysed
  • Fluid power works
  • PLCs are programmed and re-programmed
  • The robot waits for fresh instructions

A factory where the only thing missing is production pressure, such a unique place exists… and it exists for you in Norfolk.
