This apprenticeship combines two principal qualifications: Level 4 NVQ Extended Diploma in Engineering Leadership (delivered mostly in the workplace with tailorable units) and either the HNC in Manufacturing Engineering or HNC in Electrical and Electronic Engineering (completed as day-release to college). The course is designed to enable your apprentices to become competent at Level 4 in the engineering pathway relevant to your business. The apprenticeship develops the skills and knowledge necessary for a successful career in one of the following engineering disciplines: mechanical, electrical, electronic or maintenance.
Your apprentice will benefit from excellent teaching and learning facilities and an industry experienced and qualified staff team. The technical, taught components of the course will enable your apprentice to develop in depth knowledge of relevant core units. The practical aspect of the course will help to develop your apprentice's application of knowledge and skills in your workplace.
