About Youth Engineering

Youth Engineering was founded in 2014 by Bradbury Group’s chairman Tim Strawson. When Tim founded Youth Engineering, he recognised there was a need for young people without mainstream education or training to learn new skills in engineering, a fundamental part of the manufacturing sector in the UK.

Our flexible scheme enables any individual, regardless of work, education or health history, to gain hands on, real life experience, without the daily pressures felt in mainstream education and workplaces. We encourage people from all walks of life, regardless of previous experience, to learn new skills in a real-life manufacturing environment.

The scheme produces components for Bradbury Group as part of the overall door manufacturing process.


The apprenticeship

We currently provide a Level two accredited Engineering Operative apprenticeship as part of the Youth Engineering scheme.

The apprenticeship is delivered alongside our partners Springfield Training, a Government approved and registered training provider, ensuring both an educational and hands on approach to learning

  • Access to the onsite subsidised gym and canteen.
  • Opportunity to learn all aspects of the company, using a wide range of manufacturing machinery and equipment.
