Role & Department Overview

Connect 2 Cleanrooms Ltd (C2C) is an innovative Lancaster based company specialising in the design and installation of modular cleanroom solutions for critical environments.

The company provides a bespoke design service for clients in the UK and worldwide. It sources the materials and builds the cleanroom on-site at the client’s premises. Major clients include the European Organisation for Nuclear Research (CERN) in Geneva, Shell, Rolls Royce, Siemens, BAE Systems and Astra Zeneca. Take a look at their website to get a feel for this innovative and forward thinking company: connect2cleanrooms.com 

The Company has a number of Apprenticeships, most of them historically being NVQ Apprenticeships. More recently there has been the introduction of a Level 4 Engineering Apprenticeship and the Managers have found that the link between the learning in the classroom and the application in the work place is disjointed.

Apprentices require different skills development, e.g. an engineering versus marketing Apprenticeship. This also means they work towards different qualifications (e.g. Higher National Diploma versus Level 3 technician). Whilst that is an external qualification, there is also a question on how to assess the Apprenticeships internally to gauge whether they are ready to transition into a role at the end of their Apprenticeship.

The management sees the apprenticeship programme as essential to its future growth and that now with the help of a student/graduate from Lancaster University would be a good time to review the scheme.
