OBJECTIVE of the Engineering Apprenticeship

The qualification outcome has been written to allow the learner to gain skill & knowledge from both the daily learning in the workplace and support from a trainer on the underpinning knowledge questions asked in a formal environment whilst allowing for the flexibility of day to day business needs and may also recognise the skill and knowledge of a learner’s previous history, further streamlining the qualification should the learner have the evidence that they already have the skills and abilities in parts of the whole qualification.

The job role involves putting into practice additional skills in the learner’s trade or cross skills from other industries. The learner may be involved in the design, manufacture, installation or modification of sheet steel and structures or the installation and repair of plant.

While there are no formal entry requirements for this qualification, for an apprentice pathway the learner must be employed full time or part time and have access to a workplace to be able to gain sufficient experience to successfully complete the Unit of Competency requirements.

People entering the workforce to undertake an Apprenticeship in the construction sector, they may have minimal or some prior skills or Statements of Attainment which may be recognised through our recognition process.
