SSE Apprenticeships

SSE offers apprenticeships in three major areas: power distribution, contracting, and generation. Most of the apprenticeships take four years to complete. Once you complete an apprenticeship, you will be able to start working in the job for which you were trained.

The SSE apprenticeship programme offers you the opportunity to gain new skills and qualifications. In addition, the majority of apprentices attend college on a block release arrangement, which helps them progress more quickly and gives them valuable support.

SSE Apprenticeship Recruitment

The recruitment process for the programme involves completing an online application. If you are qualified, you will be asked to complete several online tests provided by SHL. The exact types of tests may vary according to the programme to which you are applying. 

If you pass the SHL online tests, SSE will ask you to complete a practical assessment and invite you to an interview. It is therefore very important to prepare for the online tests. Only by practising for these tests and successfully passing them will you be able to continue on to the next stages of the recruitment process.
