Career ProspectsWelders can work in shipyards, power stations and off-shore structures and in a diverse range of manufacturing industries.

All of our lecturers in Welding and Fabrication completed their L3 apprenticeship and joined the teaching team after experience in industry.
An apprenticeship is a great route for your career as you are learning a new skill but also getting the experience while getting paid. I chose NWRC because I’ve always heard good reports about it. I applied for welding as I always had an interest in engineering as I had done it in school.Chloe RankinEngineering (Fabrication and Welding) (Level 3 Apprenticeship)
