Technical Apprentices

Our Technical Apprenticeships aim to provide participants with the training opportunities and work experience to gain a broad range of technical skills.

Technicians at the University of Bristol are critical in the delivery of cutting edge research and teaching.

These roles are generally based in individual faculties, for example:

  • Science
  • Engineering
  • Biomedical Sciences
  • Health Sciences


We recruit one cohort of Technical Apprentices per year, and details of vacancies will be available here, and on the national apprenticeships website. Recruitment generally takes place in May, June and July, but if you are thinking about applying to be a Technical Apprentice you can express an interest at any point throughout the year.

If you are interested in employing a Technical Apprentice in your faculty, please contact Allison McRitchie directly on (0117) 33 17281 or at

Technical Apprentices are employed by departments full time, with around 20% of their time spent in training. Some training will be on the job, and depending upon the specific vacancy, some Technical Apprenticeships may involve a day release element for study elsewhere.
