The Laboratory Apprenticeship team are delighted to announce that recruitment for the September 2021 intake has begun. The programme was launched in 2018 in TU Dublin, Tallaght and has since expanded to Waterford Institute of Technology. It has seen tremendous success so far with many companies across the board getting involved and exploring a brand-new talent pool.
This programme is suitable for a diverse laboratory environment including biopharma, medical devices and diagnostics, food and drink as well as independent testing labs. Candidates who secure a place on this apprenticeship are given a fantastic opportunity to start a career in a lab. They are given access to practical, hands-on work experience while simultaneously learning the theory to support it. The two programmes on offer are Laboratory Technician (Level 6) and Laboratory Analyst (Level 7).
This programme also offers a fantastic opportunity for employers. These apprenticeships have been developed by industry for industry and they are aimed at addressing relevant skills gaps. With many companies across the country already employing lab apprentices, the feedback has been fantastic.
We are delighted to be welcoming a new group of apprentices this year – please keep an eye on this news section for role advertisements! You can apply directly to the hiring companies.
