What is it like to study this course and how will I be assessed?
This Advanced Apprenticeship in Engineering is an excellent opportunity for Apprentices who would like to build on their knowledge and skills gained at Level 2. This course is 90% workshop based and Apprentices will study practical skills and general workshop activities to achieve the qualification.
This course can lead to a BTEC Bridging course in Maths and Science for those wishing to progress to either a higher Apprenticeship, HNC or HND.
Apprentices will be working towards achievement of the following:
• Level 3 EAL AVRQ Technical Certificate in Mechanical Engineering
• NVQ Diploma Relevant to Job Role
• Employee Rights and Responsibilities
• Personal Learning and Thinking Skills
When on your college day-release, you will be taught by your Tutor or Training Officer. You will spend the remainder of the week in the workplace where you will put your new skills into practice. Whilst at work, your Training Officer will visit you and carry out assessments in a variety of styles: observing you; completing knowledge questions; setting practical tasks. They will also help you build your portfolio of evidence for your NVQ.
