This course is the mandated skills certificate for the apprenticeship as a Lean Manufacturing Operative, optional units being selected to satisfy your employment role. It is an intermediate level that would suit those leaving school who have an interest in electronics as a career, or those who are seeking to move into a new sector. The apprenticeship can lead on to an advanced level 3 apprenticeship in a similar engineering sector. In addition a knowledge qualification will be included in the apprenticeship, where you will be given face to face tuition in the classroom, on a day per week basis, by an experienced tutor who will guide you through the course to hopefully pass the on-line exam and informal unit assignments, practical and theory. You will have a formal progress review approximately every 10 weeks, with your tutor/assessor and employer representative. Additionally, you will be visited on site by your tutor/assessor to view progress on skills and competency at work. The training programme will last a minimum of 12 mths, at which point you will be guided through the gateway stage, leading to the end point assessment.

Find out what qualifications and skills you will need for this course.

Ideally you should have a minimum of grade 4/C in mathematics as you will be expected to solve technical problems using simple formulae.

You will also cover: H & S; effective communication and working effectively within a manufacturing environment; workplace organisation; preparing for and controlling manufacturing operations. The supporting knowledge qualification covers the knowledge required to understand basic electrical and electronics applications, using a range of test equipment and theoretical approaches.

Understand how the course will be delivered.

One day per week you will attend a class at our Leeds office or, if appropriate, at your employment site, to be taught the technical knowledge and practical application of electronics. This is supplemented by an appropriate resource on-line, via Moodle. You will be assessed at the workplace for progress in skills and competency.

Find out what material you will need.

All personal protective equipment (PPE) will be provided by your employer when required. Laptops for training purposes will be provided during classroom sessions.

Find out more about exams, assignments and assessments.

The skills/competency qualification requires oversight and assessment of your skills at an acceptable level, this will be supported by your portfolio of evidence relative to the required knowledge, skills, and behaviours. Successful completion of the associated knowledge qualification will depend upon a minimum of a Pass on each of the internal assessment activities and a Pass in the formal on-line exam.
