You will receive training and develop your skills in order to be able to; produce components in a mechanical engineering environment; use a variety of materials and tools such as hand tools, machine tools and equipment; and use machinery, including Lathes and Milling machines. Training could also involve the production of engineering drawings using computer aided design (CAD), ‘CNC’ (Computer Numerically Controlled) machining, electrical/electronic skills and/or welding skills. You will also work towards demonstrating a core set of behaviours such as working safely, problem solving and communicating effectively.
Apprentices will work towards an NVQ Level 2 (PEO), and a Level 2 Technical Certificate as a foundation before progressing onto an NVQ Level 3 and Diploma in Engineering. The programme is typically 42 months including an End Point Assessment.
