10 low carbon heating technical apprentices at Derby College with Vaillant's hare character standing in front of them

Vaillant and Derby College welcome first 10 low-carbon apprentices

Vaillant is supporting the first cohort of low-carbon heating technician apprentices by partnering with the Derby College Group.

Vaillant will invest in 10 full-time, employed apprentices throughout their three-year course until they qualify as a Level 3 low-carbon heating technician.

In addition to their qualification, apprentices will get a rounder view of working in the heating industry and how to conduct themselves in customers’ homes, to offer excellent customer experience and service. They will also gain additional qualifications and skills such as plumbing, bricklaying, plastering, electrics and customer service.

They will experience working across the Vaillant business and their second and third years will include on-the-job training with qualified heating engineers to provide more first-hand installation experience.

Previously, sector-specific apprenticeships have focused on traditional gas heating systems, with students required to complete additional learning to install equipment such as heat pumps.
