This one-year industry-recognised course provides the skills and experience needed to build a successful career in engineering manufacturing (fabrication and welding). You will cover all aspects of fabrication and welding as well mechanical and manufacturing engineering, and areas such as employer rights and responsibility. You will also gain the transferable skills needed to progress within employment and/or to higher-level study. B&FC benefits from strong employer links and expert tutors with lots of industry experience, which provides a highly relevant learning experience aligned to your future career goals.
There are no specific requirements for this course, however as an advanced apprentice it is likely that you will have some prior experience of engineering or have completed a relevant level 2 course.
We will carry out an initial assessment to ensure you have a fair opportunity to demonstrate your ability. We can then tailor your programme of learning according to whichever level you're at.
If you don't have prior experience of an engineering role we may recommend you enrol on the Level 2 Performing Engineering Operations Apprenticeship instead. We will judge all individuals on their own merits, experiences and capabilities.
You need to be working between 30 and 40 hours a week in the related occupation of your chosen apprenticeship and be at least 16 years old. Your role will be subject to a health and safety appraisal and skills scan to ensure it meets the requirements of the qualification.
If necessary, our Skills and Business Team can support you in finding a suitable role (we often have a good selection of employers looking to recruit an apprentice).
