The course aims to equip students with the essential qualities of an engineer - for example working effectively as a team, solving problems, having an awareness of cost, and sustainability. The course has a mix of theory and practical sessions taking place in our new multi-million-pound Engineering, Manufacturing and Technology (EMAT) centre.

With this being a Higher Level Apprenticeship you will follow the same procedure as other apprentices, being released from your workplace to study one day per week on the HNC. The rest of the time you will be at your place of work, developing your skill set and supporting the employers needs.

What will I do?

During the Apprenticeship you will study the following mandatory units:

  • Engineering Design
  • Engineering Maths
  • Engineering Science
  • Managing a Professional Engineering Project (Pearson-set)

There are then optional units that include:

  • Renewable Energy
  • Fluid Mechanics
  • Mechanical Workshop Practices
  • Engineering Management
  • Machining and Processing Engineering Materials
  • Materials, Properties and Testing

An MMP profile on an Engineering BTEC Level 3 course or a related subject, or an A Level equivalent (minimum 80 new UCAS points), or an Access to Higher Education qualification.

You will also need a Level 2 qualification or above in English and Maths (e.g. GCSE or Functional Skills) and/or minimum IELTS score 6.

Individual cases will be considered if you fall outside any of these categories.

This Apprenticeship will take you three years to complete. This will involve a day release model for two years where you will complete your HNC qualification. The final year is more portfolio based, ensuring that you can demonstrate the required Knowledge, Skills and Behaviours required to move to your End Point Assessment.

As an Apprentice, you will pay no course fees. However, your employer may have to pay towards your training as well as providing you with a wage (please see below).

Under 18s – the required national minimum wage of £4.35 per hour.

18–20 year olds - the required national minimum wage of £6.15 per hour.

All units are individually graded as a pass, merit or distinction. A pass is awarded for the achievement of all outcomes against the specified assessment criteria. Merit and distinction grades are awarded for higher level achievement.

Your assessment consists of both coursework and practical examinations e.g. presentations and group discussions.

The assessment of Pearson's Higher National qualifications is criterion-referenced, and you will provide evidence in the form of assignments, which are assessed against the unit learning outcomes and assessment criteria.

The BTEC HNC qualifications are highly valued by employers and can lead to careers in Engineering. You could progress onto the Level 5 HND, either full or part time or alternatively explore our short courses available for additional training.

Additional costs include purchasing corporate work wear, which includes polo shirts, overalls and safety footwear. You will require your own laptop and money for books etc.
