Apprenticeships

Apprentices make the craftspeople of the future, and we are proud to support them at Bord na Móna in conjunction with Solas (formally FÁS).

We offer apprenticeships in many areas, including electrical, mechanical automation maintenance fitting, construction plant fitting, and to mechanics. Bord na Móna has facilitated this programme since the 1940’s with most of our apprentices continuing on in vital roles once qualified.

Our Apprentices are required to complete on the job training and attend college over a four year period. On average, Bord na Móna takes on 4 apprentices every year.

Assessment

Apprentices’ progress is reviewed on a continuous, structured basis through assessments that combine course work with practical and theoretical assessments.
During the on-the-job training phases of apprenticeship, the apprentice’s competence is assessed to a pre-specified standard by the employer.

Award

On successful completion of all assessments over a period of four years the apprentices will be awarded with a FETAC Level 6 Advanced Certificate. This Level 6 Certificate has national and international recognition and is a compulsory requirement for craftsperson status.

How to apply:

The apprenticeship is advertised on our current vacancies page in mid-August. Just check then or get on contact with us via Twitter.
