New Apprenticeship- Renewable Energy Systems Technician

A new
apprenticeship for Renewable Energy Systems Technicians is going to be launched
this year. The candidates who joined this course (MCAST Diploma in Green Energy
Technologies- Level 4) in October 2013 are currently in their full-time year at
MCAST and they would shortly be eligible to apply for a 2 year apprenticeship
scheme.

Circa 10
students are eligible to join the apprenticeship and those who find an employer
who can support their on-the-job training would be eligible to start their placement
as from 1st July 2014. The period from July till the end of September is
referred to as the observation period whereby the apprentice attends for
on-the-job training at a place of work at no cost to the employer. This period
is intended to assist both the employer and the apprentice make up their mind
whether they are to proceed with the apprenticeship placement.

GRTU and

finding a suitable training placement. Employers who are interested in
recruiting apprentice/s in this field are kindly requested to get in touch with

employers who express their interest in employing an apprentice will receive
