Level 3 Apprenticeship in Engineering Business Operations

Level 3 Advanced Apprenticeship in Business Operations

This apprenticeship has been designed for employers who want to develop their workforce so that they can support and develop all the business operations that maybe associated with engineering activities.

The programme has been developed around an engineering context but focuses on developing the business skills that are required to support engineering and business operations. Our aim is to provide the apprentices with a sound business foundation, suitable for those working in a range of careers within engineering and industry.

Course length

The normal duration for completion is 3 years for an Advanced Apprenticeship, unless individual circumstances (such as significant prior learning) enable the learner to make exceptional progress and complete within this time. The course has to last a minimum of 12 months.

Training and support

A technical support apprentice will need to attend the Academy two days a week to complete the relevant learning for successful completion of the ‘technical certificate’. The requirement to attend the Academy will be for 2 years or until the ‘technical certificate’ is complete.

The rest of the training will take place in the workplace by the employer and be over 3 years. The apprentice will be assigned an Apprentice Co-ordinator who will visit every 6 weeks to ensure the apprentice and the employer is happy with progress and achievement regarding the NVQ element of the apprenticeship.

All advanced level apprentices will need to attain a Level 2 Functional Skill qualification in English, Mathematics or ICT to meet the requirements of this level of apprenticeship or have C grades or above at GCSE level.
