Why this apprenticeship?
A Level 4 Higher Apprenticeship involves work-based learning and vocational technical knowledge.
The broad purpose of the Engineering Manufacturing Technician is to provide specialist technical support for engineers. This will then enable organisations to develop, produce or test new/existing products, processes, or procedures. The outcome of this is that the customer specification will be met in terms of quality, cost and delivery, as efficiently and effectively as possible.
Engineering Manufacturing Technicians gather information and data from a range of sources and analyse the information/data.
- 5 GCSEs at Grade C (Grade 4/5 in the new numerical GCSE grading system) to include English and maths
- Level 3 Engineering qualification or relevant equivalent experience
- To ensure that the apprenticeship standard and pathway is appropriate for the job role, both the employer and yourself will have a consultation with the Engineering Centre tutors prior to enrolment. A bespoke training plan will be created for you
