Apprenticeships at Hinkley Point C

At Hinkley Point C, our aspiration is to create 1,000 apprenticeships over the course of construction. The wide range of skills required to build the power station means there really is opportunity for everyone. EDF Energy apprentices will also play a crucial role in operating and maintaining the power station throughout its 60 years of operation. So far we have supported the creation of 250 apprenticeships.

Apprenticeships are at the forefront of our workforce development and skills needs and we want to provide the best possible access and experience for all apprentices working and learning as part of the project. The majority of apprenticeships created will be through our primary contract partners - such as Bouygues, Laing O’Rourke, Costain, KierBam, Alstom and Areva – who will specify exact requirements and commitments for each apprentice.
