QinetiQ Apprentice Training School

Based at MOD Boscombe Down near Salisbury in Wiltshire, the QinetiQ Apprentice Training School (QATS) provides a brilliant way to start your career in engineering.

Each course combines the development of technical expertise with functional training that prepares you for working life – and gives you the opportunity to further develop your non-technical skills. As well as training at the school, you’ll spend time working on real projects and placements around the business or at your home site.
