This apprenticeship is designed for employers wanting to develop their workforce in the arena of engineering.

An engineering apprentice will, for example, produce components using hand fitting techniques, producing CAD models and using lathes for turning operations. The programme will also cover Health and Safety, engineering environment awareness units and also cover some engineering Maths and science.

This course is designed to give young apprentices all the engineering skills necessary so that they can carry out a technician role within engineering or go on to study at a higher level.

Course length

The normal duration for completion is 1 year for an intermediate apprenticeship.

Training and support

An engineering apprentice will need to attend the Academy two days a week to complete the relevant learning for successful completion of the ‘technical certificate’. The rest of the training will take place in the workplace by the employer. The apprentice will be assigned an Apprentice Co-ordinator who will visit every 6-10 weeks to ensure the apprentice and the employer are happy with progress and achievement.

All intermediate apprentices will need to attain a Level 1 Functional Skill qualification in English, Mathematics and ICT. In addition we encourage all learners to attain a level 2 qualification.
