Technician Apprenticeships at Queen's University

The introduction of the Technician Apprenticeship Programme at Queen's University Belfast is an exciting opportunity for the university to contribute to this important sector.

Apprenticeships are a key contributor to the UK economy, with an estimated contribution of £200 million per year. Queen's technician apprenticeships help to develop skills, gain a recognised industry qualification and work in some of the most advanced workshops/labs in Northern Ireland.

The university is committed to providing opportunities for the whole of Northern Irish society, and the Technician Apprenticeship Programme is an important step towards achieving that goal.
By providing apprenticeships, Queen's is investing in the future of its workforce while supporting the development of skills in the wider community.
