Laboratory Apprenticeship Information Session
The laboratory apprenticeships have been desinged by industry, for industry. They are closely aligned with the current skills needs of the BioPharamChem sector as well as the Medical Devices and Diagnostics, Food and Drink and Independent Testing Laboratory sectors.
What is a Laboratory Apprenticeship
The laboratory apprenticeships are, “earn while you learn” higher certificate and degree programmes that combine paid on the job training with academic study.
These two and three-year programmes are suitable for leaving certificate students or those with an equivalent qualification, who have an interest in pursuing a career in science.
The laboratory apprenticeships lead to a Level 6 Higher Certificate in Science as a Laboratory Technician and a Level 7 Ordinary Bachelor of Science Degree as a Laboratory Analyst.
What our participating employers are saying
" With the first academic year of the Laboratory Apprenticeships coming to a close, I can honestly say the program has exceeded our expectations, with our Apprentices having successfully and quickly integrated into our QC team, being viewed as value adding contributors by all.
The blending of the academic learnings and the work placement has been excellent, and our Apprentices are now trained and actively conducting calibrations, environmental monitoring and physical testing, as well as being added as trained users on LIMS.
We believe that this alternative yet sustainable approach to the recruitment and development of Laboratory scientists complements our more traditional approach very well and it will remain a core part of our people strategy going forward."
