• Are you not quite ready for a full Apprenticeship?
  • Are you aged 16 – 18?

Our Evolve Programme provides an opportunity for you to achieve a nationally-recognised diploma. It is designed and built for 16-18 year olds who aren’t quite ready for a full Apprenticeship but have an interest in a future career in Engineering.  

Currently only offered at our Chesterfield site, we enrol on the Evolve Programme throughout the year.

The Evolve Programme will prepare you for work within the engineering industry by giving you the opportunity to sample a wide range of engineering skills, giving you the chance to find out what you’re best at and enjoy the most.

While you are on the Evolve Programme, NLT will also actively seek to find you a suitable employer who can then fund a full Apprenticeship for you when you’re ready.


Level 1 – EAL Diploma in Engineering and Manufacturing
Level 2 – EAL Diploma in Engineering and Technology
Work towards improving your maths and English (GCSE/Functional Skills)

What’s next?

NLT's Evolve Programme opens the door for you to go into a full Apprenticeship in Engineering – either at Level 2 or Level 3, dependent upon the grade of diploma you achieve.
