What will I learn? Where could this course take me? Course SummaryThis Apprenticeship Standard is designed for Machinists who are involved in highly skilled, complex and precision work machining components from specialist materials using conventional and/or CNC machine tools such as: • Centre lathes • Vertical and horizontal milling machines • Horizontal and cylindrical grinding machines • Electro discharge machines • Single and multi-axis CNC machine tools centres Entry RequirementsEmployers will set the recruitment and selection criteria for their Apprenticeships. In order to optimise success, candidates will typically have 4 GCSEs at Grade C/4 or equivalent, including Mathematics, English and a Science. If you do not hold the relevant Mathematics and English qualifications, you will be expected to undertake functional skills at level 2 in both subjects. Personal Protective Equipment Please note: Where wearing PPE (Personal Protective Equipment) is a mandatory requirement of the course, it is the responsibility of the learner to ensure that they are able to wear such equipment.

Qualification ObtainedBSc (Hons) Project Management Industry Placement and Field TripsYou will normally work around 30 hours per week, and no more than 40 hours (if you are under 18), which includes any training time at college (off the job) as well as on the job with your employer. Learning and Teaching MethodsSpecific Specialist Knowledge: Understand mathematical techniques, formula and calculation involved in the machining processes such as speeds and feeds, calculating angles/tapers, material removal Understand the practical and theoretical uses of the machines used, and their applications. Understand the work-holding devices, cutting tools, and setting up procedures, in adequate depth to provide a sound basis for carrying out the activities, correcting faults and ensuring the work output is to the required specification Specific Specialist Skills: Read and interpret relevant data and documentation used to produce machined components Determine the most efficient and effective approach to machine the component using a range of tools, machining process and Techniques Select and set up the correct tooling and work holding devices Set and adjust the machine operating parameters to produce the work pieces to the required specification. This will involve setting feeds and speeds for roughing and finishing operations Select and use a range of measuring and testing equipment to check components are to the required quality and accuracy Produce complex and specialist components as a one off test and trial work piece and/or producing components in small or large batches Contribute to the business by identifying possible opportunities for improving working practices, processes and/or procedures Expert Tutors All staff involved in the delivery of adult education courses within the College are approved to teach the subjects and modules they deliver. The approval process ensures that staff delivering a given programme are appropriately qualified and, where appropriate, possess relevant technical and industrial experience and professional practice. Career Options and ProgressionIf you successfully achieve all parts of the Apprenticeship, your Skills Coach will discuss your next steps to take. Dependent on your roles and responsibilities, this may be the next level of the subject you have been studying already or a different pathway.
