An engineer training an apprentice on boiler maintenance

Apprenticeship funding and support from Baxi

Baxi Approved Installers can apply for funding and support if they are taking on an apprentice – but you must apply by 13 June 2021.

Working in conjunction with selected local colleges in England (BMet College, Birmingham; Weston College, Weston-Super-Mare, and Leeds College of Building, Leeds), the Baxi apprenticeship scheme pays for the college fees of successful applicants. They will also be provided with branded workwear, PPE, free Baxi product/specialist training, work experience with a Baxi engineer and a factory tour.

Successful candidates will be invited for interviews in July 2021 and offers will be made in August 2021, before the course starts in September 2021.

Baxi national training manager Steve Owen says: “This is a fantastic opportunity for Baxi’s network of approved installers and their new gas engineering apprentices to get ahead and receive funding and support from Baxi.

“We all have a role to play in providing the next generation with the skills and support required to enter the industry and thrive, so our hope is that this scheme will open the door for even more entrants to start their career journey. Now is a great time for installers in the Midlands, South West and West Yorkshire, where our partnering colleges are based, to hire an apprentice and apply.

“As part of Baxi’s sustainability pledge, we are committed to developing new low-carbon heating technologies, and this is a way we can support our approved installers and their apprentices with information, training and support as we journey towards net-zero.

“Another of our commitments is to promote diversity and inclusion within the heating industry, and we encourage any apprentices from any background to apply and open the horizons of their working life by learning a trade.”
