Our Apprentice Program

Fire Engineer apprentices at BB7 play a vital role in ensuring the safety and effectiveness of fire protection systems. As apprentices , they receive comprehensive and extensive training with hands on experiences to develop their skills in becoming trained professionals in the field. BB7 , a leading fire engineering consultancy , supports these apprentices through mentorship , tailored learning programmes and a wide range of exposure to real world projects.

All in all , this support helps facilitate a deep level of understanding of fire safety regulations , building  codes and innovative technologies. By nurturing these apprentices , BB7 not only contributes to growth of the next generation of fire engineers but enhances the overall fire safety standards in various industries.

    As I reflect on my first year as an apprentice fire engineer, I cannot help but feel an overwhelming sense of growth and accomplishment. From the first day, I have had the privilege of working on remarkable projects whilst concurrently pursuing my degree at Birmingham City University.
    Each day presents new opportunities to learn and grow, not just in my position as an apprentice engineer, but also as an individual. I am eager to continue this journey of growth and learning and will use the experiences and lessons from my first year to shape my future endeavours.
    An apprenticeship was definitely the best route for me and I am immensely grateful for the support and encouragement I have received from my mentors and colleagues throughout the year. I am extremely thankful to BB7 for the opportunity and look forward to the challenges ahead.

  • Apprentice Fire Engineer - Stanley Branch

    The past year in engineering has been a profound learning experience. From day one, I have been immersed in the world of fire engineering, engaging in a range of complex and challenging projects. Overall, it has all been extremely rewarding and I eagerly look forward to continuing to grow and develop in order to become a competent Fire Engineer, capable of providing a positive influence on the industry and inspiring future engineers.

  • Apprentice Fire Engineer - Katie Fernandez Bicette

    My first year in engineering as an apprentice has flown by so quickly it’s hard to believe it has really been that long. Juggling work, uni and personal life has been challenging but rewarding as I’ve found myself genuinely enjoying my studies and being able to apply that knowledge to my job. The course so far has felt much less arduous than my first degree 10 years ago, but that could have something to do with not being hungover in lectures this time around!

    Coming into this I was quite apprehensive as I had no previous experience of engineering (with the exception of endless hours playing with Lego/Meccano/Knex) and I was worried this would hold me back. I discovered quickly this wouldn’t be the case and with the guidance of my mentors and colleagues I’ve learned so much; not just in relation to my role as an engineer but about myself as a person too. I’ve come to realise that with the right support and environment I’m able to achieve more than I once thought myself capable of.

    I’m proud of the progress I’ve made on my apprenticeship journey so far, and look forward to continuous learning and growth with the support of BB7.
