Pathway to Apprenticeship –  Engineering

Code: 5M2061


Duration: 1 year(March – March)


The aim of this programme is to provide a pathway for people who want to start on a career in an engineering field. It takes place with the employer and in the college which provides the learner with training and practical experience in the working environment. In addition to further developing the skills and knowledge gained during the off -the -job training elements, the learner will develop the competence and self-confidence to consistently perform to industrial standards. The skills and learning that is learned in the college can be practised and developed in the work place. When completed, the learner will have gained a broad foundation of knowledge and skills across the different Engineering disciplines, especially those in Building Construction, Computer Aided Drafting, Engineering processes and Material Science. In addition, the mathematical and soft skills learned through the Safety and Health at Work, communications and work experience modules will ensure that the learner progressing to an apprenticeship have the desired quality, suitability and competency for the courses.
