Who this course is for
The broad purpose of the occupation is to produce complex high value, low volume components or assemblies in full or part, using machines, equipment or systems, to the required specification. For example, turbines, cranes, gearboxes, production lines, rigs and platforms. Fitters may typically have a mechanical, electrical, electronic, control systems, pipe fitting or instrumentation bias or operate across multiple disciplines depending on the type of assembly. To produce or re-furbish the components fitters will interpret drawings/specifications and plan their work, for example ensuring they have the right tools, equipment and resources to complete the task to the required specification. Fitters are required to check their work against quality standards and make adjustments as required based on their knowledge. On completion of the task a fitter will hand over the product and prepare the work area for the next task by checking equipment meets the standards required to operate. They may be based in a workshop or clients premises - this may include hazardous environments.

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
English & Maths Apprentices without level 2 English and maths will need to achieve this level prior to taking the End-Point Assessment. For those with an education, health and care plan or a legacy statement, the apprenticeship’s English and maths minimum requirement is Entry Level 3. A British Sign Language (BSL) qualification is an alternative to the English qualification for those whose primary language is BSL. Other mandatory qualifications Level 3 Advanced Manufacturing Engineering (Development Knowledge) Level 3 - Advanced Manufacturing Engineering (Development Technical Knowledge Further information can be found: https://www.instituteforapprenticeships.org/apprenticeship-standards/engineering-fitter/
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.
