The Citizen reports how the company has teamed with Gloucestershire College and two other education establishments to create a full-time level two programme.
It is funded and supported by the firm in a bid to boost the talent pool for the EDF Energy Engineering Apprenticeship which starts in early 2013.
Trainees will study science, maths and practical skills and receive a bursary of £30 per week.
The course is designed to assist motivated and talented young people to work towards a career in engineering through the development of skills, confidence and qualifications.
Applications for the pre-apprenticeship programme are being accepted until August 24th, with 16 places available.
The apprentice scheme is a four-year programme that provides participants with an Advanced Modern Apprenticeship Certificate in Engineering upon completion.
