Training Opportunities at Xtrac

Xtrac welcomes the 2019 intake of apprentices, undergraduates and graduates to Xtrac, all of whom are embarking on the next exciting chapter of their career journeys. With ten level 2 & level 3 apprentices, seven under graduates and four graduates starting, this represents the highest single year intake for Xtrac.

CEO – Adrian Moore, Talent Acquisition Coordinator – Lucy Webb, Apprentice Manager – Warren Page, Engineering Manager – Stuart Croot and Production Manager – Paul Dalgarno all met with the latest inductees before they promptly disperse to their various departments / positions and start their relevant external education courses.

Our Princess Royal Training award winning apprenticeship programme follows a SEMTA approved Advanced Apprenticeship in Mechanical Engineering and will last 3-4 years (Level 2 for 12-15 months), depending on individual ability. The programme combines on the job training and college attendance. The window for 2020 apprenticeship applications opens in November, with the selection process being held during March/April 2020.

Xtrac have been running an Industrial placement program for over 22 years and benefit from many placement students returning as Graduates, following the completion of their studies. Many of our past graduates develop their careers at Xtrac, gaining promotions to senior roles working on high technology projects.

We at Xtrac believe in investing in our people and see our apprentices and students not just as temporary staff but as our future leaders and therefore ensure that during their time with us they gain as much relevant experience as possible, so that they can continue to grow with Xtrac.

Applications for our 2020 industrial placements open in October 2019 under the Careers section of our website.
