Development and support

We partner with external providers to deliver our Apprentice Development Programme.

We have designed programmes packed full of great learning experiences that will equip you with the knowledge and tools you need to thrive and perform at your very best on your programme and beyond.

Each learning experience will give you practical advice and tools that will allow you to develop yourself and apply this new learning into your life at Babcock in order to be successful on your apprenticeship and throughout your career.

“I was lucky enough to join other apprentices on a week away in the Lake District. We had the opportunity to go late night swimming in lakes, rock climbing, abseiling, and rock scrambling. We all learnt a lot about each other and ourselves – it was very rewarding.”

Early careers support

You will be assigned with early careers support or a business mentor who will provide you with resources and support during your apprenticeship. You’ll have regular catch-ups to discuss your career development at Babcock and provide you with general support and guidance.

“At Babcock I have a huge support network. My support network at work includes my line manager, my mentor, the fellow apprentices, my colleagues and the early careers team.”

Kane, Supply Chain and Procurement Apprentice


As part of our commitment to supporting our employees, Babcock is delighted to sponsor a number of employee networks within the business. These networks support their members in many ways, including connecting people across the business and empowering them to achieve their potential.

Social and community life

We have a wide network of apprentices and graduates who join Babcock each year and there is always a social event for you to get involved with. There are also a number of sports and social clubs including cricket, football, running and photography.

“There are lots of ways to get involved at Babcock. I am part of the STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering and Maths) community at Babcock – I attend school events in the local area to help promote careers in STEM. I also took part the Babcock 10k Series this year, completing three 10km running races across the UK.”
