In recent years, apprenticeships have been changing their image. The barriers to engaging in apprenticeships have been lifted to accommodate: higher age learners, previous learning experiences and government funding, which will appeal to existing staff members and returners to the industry, not just new staff. At the Institute of Explosives Engineers, under the guidance of the Sector Skills Strategy Group Trailblazers and with the University of Wales Trinity St David, a tailored Level 6 OME Degree apprenticeship has been developed.

Detailed information on apprenticeships can be found at the Institute for Apprenticeships.
