If you are looking to begin a career rather than a job, the CPM Group is a great place to start, we offer paid apprenticeships across our production, engineering, business and sales functions as well as many more.
Our apprenticeships are designed to give you the right balance between classroom learning and hands on experience ensuring you are best placed to be offered a permanent position following your studies. Depending on the trade you opt for and your level of experience, an apprenticeship with CPM should be completed in 2-3 years and you would formally qualify with a level 2, level 3 or level 4 diploma in a related discipline. There is potential under the apprenticeship scheme to study part-time at university enabling you to gain a level 5 or 6 qualification – equivalent to a degree
Talented apprentices are the future of our production business and we are investing in relationships across the country with schools, colleges and universities. We are committed to taking an apprenticeship intake from local communities each year into our business units.
All our graduates and undergraduates receive excellent structured training and are involved in significant projects from the start of their career.

Help for school and college leavers
Year 11 (15/16 year olds)
Pretty soon you’ll have some big decisions to make: college course choices, possibly accommodation or finances – there’s certainly lots to think about. You could consider another route entirely – one where you’ll gain valuable experience in the world of work.
By joining an Apprenticeship Programme with CPM, you’ll get some of the best training the construction industry has to offer, leading to a host of brilliant opportunities within a number of areas across the CPM business and because you’ll be working from day one, you’ll be earning too, along with gaining a head start to your career.
Year 13 (17/18 year olds)
If you’re serious about a career in the construction industry, there is an alternative to heading straight to university here within the CPM Group.
Instead of racking up lots of debt, you could be earning from day one. We’ll help you fulfill your potential with the best training the industry has to offer. Where you go from there is up to you, however if you are the right person your career could just be starting with us. We will help you build your confidence and experience, so at the end of the scheme, you’ll have an impressive CV – as well as a good salary.
Helping young people decide their future is a big responsibility and a difficult one too, given the high university fees and tough job market. Here’s another option you should know about. At the CPM Group, we want to give talented young people a first-class Apprenticeship programme. It gives them the chance to get a head start in the world of work, through expert, on-the-job training, which will set them up for an exciting career. They’ll be learning from the best in the business and developing invaluable skills.
Higher Education is not for everyone. Some prefer to learn through experience. Others find the thought of a further two or three years in formal education daunting. The thought of leaving higher education with student loans to pay off is also a challenging prospect.
Like any parent, you still want the best for your children and want to see them get the best start to the world of work.
In this situation it’s good to know that there are other options. Talented A Level school or college leavers can now opt for an Apprenticeship at the CPM Group.
It’s a chance to gain valuable work skills that will set them up for life. Our Apprenticeship programmes offer practical, on-the-job training which prepares young people for a promising future with us. Exposure to the world of work means they gain independence and confidence, whilst building long-term career prospects. Our structured development programmes can lead to any number of career routes within our business, which is growing and changing all the time. And crucially, our Apprentices earn as they learn, which means they have their own income – which has to be good news for everyone.
