|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 entry requirements for this pathway over and above the general framework entry requirements. However, it is likely that advanced apprentices will have either a relevant level 2 qualification or some prior experience of engineering to allow them to complete the advanced apprenticeship (although this is not a formal requirement).
If you do not have any prior experience of engineering you may be better suited to the Level 2 Performing Engineering Operations Apprenticeship, although all individuals will be judged on their own merits, experiences and capabilities.
An initial assessment will be used to ensure all applicants have a fair opportunity to demonstrate their ability. Learning programmes can then be tailored to meet a range of abilities and to recognise prior knowledge and experience.
To begin an apprenticeship, you should ideally be employed already.
