Who this course is for
Maintenance & Operations Engineering Technicians covers a wide range of roles, such as Electrical Technicians, Mechanical Technicians, Control & Instrumentation Technicians, Electrical System and Process Control Technicians.
Electromechanical Technicians. They will maintain the safety, integrity and effective operation of plant and equipment in one or more of the following Industries that are part of or have activities that are part of the broader national infrastructure Engineering Sector.
Electrical/Mechanical/Control and Instrumentation Technicians will work on various types of plant and equipment commonly found throughout the Engineering Industry sectors and the Technicians can be expected to migrate through these sectors during the course of their careers. Dependent upon the sector that they are employed in there may be subtle differences in terms of the composition and application of the plant and equipment. However, the fundamental principles of operation will be the same regardless of the engineering sector.
For more information on this standard:
Candidates must have an employer willing to support the requirements of the apprenticeship standard.
Individual employers will set the selection criteria for their apprentices. Most candidates will have achieved grade C or above in English and Maths and a STEM-related subject at Level 2 prior to commencement of apprenticeship.
If you do not have these, we can assess your current level of literacy/numeracy.
What you'll learn
On this programme you will study towards one of the available pathways. Depending on your job role, you will study a variety of units in Level 2 Performing Engineering Operations (or equivalent), BTEC Level 3 Diploma in Advanced Manufacturing Engineering and NVQ Level 3 Diploma.
The apprentice will have a depth and breadth of English and mathematics that allow them to operate successfully within their role. This may be met through entry criteria determined by the employer or qualifications and training within the apprenticeship. However, on completion all apprentices will have minimum level 2 qualifications in English and mathematics. Some employers may mandate training or qualifications at level 3 in English and/or mathematics.
How you'll learn
The course is delivered by a mixture of theory and practical work, both at College and in the workplace.
How you'll be assessed
There will be continuous assessment of both your practical skills and theoretical knowledge.
What you can do next
Further Study: Higher National Certificate in Engineering or Foundation Degree.
