Overview

This Apprenticeship will teach you fundamental principles of engineering, including the technical knowledge of milling, turning and metal fabrication and quality standards. You will play an important part in manufacturing, maintenance and production of a huge variety of products and services. This one-year course is the ideal starting point for an engineering Apprentice.

You will:
  • Understand how to obtain the necessary job instructions, engineering drawings and specifications and how to interpret them
  • Cover relevant statutory, quality, environmental compliance procedures/systems, organisational and health and safety regulations relating to engineering operations
  • Cover individual roles and responsibilities within the organisation and the flexibility required to support the achievement of company targets
  • Learn about engineering operational practices, processes and procedures
  • Identify potential problems that can occur within engineering operations and how they can be avoided
This Apprenticeship is ideal if you would like to work in a practical role, pay attention to detail, and have an interest in the engineering, maintenance and creation of products.
Next steps: After the Level 2 Apprenticeship, you could move on to the Level 3 Apprenticeship as a Plate Welder or choose a pathway from the Engineering Technician Apprenticeship. You could also move straight into the industry in your chosen engineering field.
Entry Requirements
Every employer is different and therefore the entry requirements can vary. As a guide, you ideally need GCSE grade 4 in
English and Maths and in some cases ICT. However, we will work with you and provide additional support to help you achieve their requirements, either prior to your Apprenticeship via a pre-Apprenticeship or during the delivery of your programme.
Facilities

Apprentices have access to all facilities across college. These include the college Learning Resource Centres and the college gym.
