|Anytime||Employers Premises||At least 1 year||Apply|
This one-year industry-recognised course provides the skills and experience needed to build a successful career in engineering manufacturing. You will cover all aspects of electrical and electronic engineering as well as areas such as employer rights and responsibility, and 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 entry 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 undertake an initial assessment to ensure you have a fair opportunity to demonstrate your ability. We can then tailor your programme of study accordingly at the level that's appropriate for you. If you don't have prior experience of an engineering-related role we might recommend you do 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 at 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).
