This qualification is for you if you want to work in the Engineering and Manufacturing sectors.
If you like to explore how simple components and complex machines are designed, made or maintained and are keen to develop practical and technical skills then this qualification is for you. This practical based training is ideal preparation for gaining employment in engineering and manufacturing sectors or further specialist study.
This qualification allows you to focus on one of the three specialist pathways.
The following mandatory content is included in each pathway:
- Prinicples of Engineering
- This allows you to understand the basic principles of mathematics, science and materials that re important wherever you work in engineering.
- Engineering Workshop Practice
- This allows you to recognise and apply safe working practices, develop the knowledge and skills for producing components for assembly using appropriate tools, different materials and inspection techniques.
- Business Improvement Prinicples
- This will provide you with an understanding of how an engineering business is built up, operates and achieves commercial success.
The three specialist pathways are:
- Fabrication and Welding
- You will gain and understanding of the welding processes and how to produce welds to an industrial standard. To do this, you will learn how to operate the necessary fabrication equipment and perform cutting of metals.
- You will gain an understanding of mechanical, electrical and fluid power systems and how these ae maintained. Also why planned maintenance is important and the different types of fault-finding techniques
- Manufacturing Technologies
- You will gain an understanding of CAD/CAM and the important to manufacturing, produce components through manual and CNC machines.
We work with local employers who will contribute to the knowledge and delivery of your training. You can expect lectures given by industry experts and employer input into projects and exercises.
