Foundry Apprenticeship

Financial and Professional Support During Your Studies

If you study or want to study in the field of foundry processes or raw materials, then why not get in contact with us! We support apprentices in these fields for the duration of the standard study period by offering a monthly bursary. You will also spend academic holidays with us, which is a total of 12 weeks per year. This gives you the opportunity to enhance your theoretical knowledge with practical assignments while also receiving payment for your work. A place will also be reserved for you at GF Casting Solutions for you to complete your Thesis. The aim is to ensure that we get to know each other inside out during your studies, meaning that there is potential for a successful collaboration in the future.
