Our Level 2 (Intermediate) Engineering Technology Apprenticeship is a nationally recognised course involving the use of intermediate engineering techniques and training, offering you the opportunity to gain hands on industry experience.This course is aimed at those who are interested in gaining a recognised qualification to lead into a career in the engineering industry. You will study both the BTEC First Certificate in Engineering Level 2 and Work Based Engineering NVQ Level 2.

What will I do?

The Apprenticeship framework consists of several elements, which have been identified by employers as the skills you need if you want to find work in the Engineering industry.These elements are: Maths - Level 1 or Level 2 Functional Skills, unless an equivalent qualification has already been achieved.English - Level 1 or Level 2 Functional Skills, unless an equivalent qualification has already been achieved.ICT - Level 1 or Level 2 is a requirement of some Apprenticeships unless an equivalent qualification has already been achieved.ERR - Employee Rights and Responsibilities, which includes health and safety, equality and diversity as well as employment legislation.PLTS - Personal Learning and Thinking Skills, which includes team working, creative thinking and reflective learning.Vocational Element (Knowledge) - most Apprenticeship frameworks include off-the-job study for a technical certificate, which is usually done at College.Vocational Element (Competence) - all Apprenticeships include on-the-job training and assessment leading to a competence based vocational qualification.On some frameworks, the knowledge and competence elements are combined into one qualification.The qualifications you will study within your Apprenticeship framework are BTEC First Certificate in Engineering Level 2 and Work Based Engineering NVQ Level 2. All units are assessed through practical assignments, internal phase test and assignments. All units must be successfully completed to achieve this award. Work based assessments will also form part of the qualification. Functional Skills can be delivered in two ways:
  • You will attend day release, where functional skills will be delivered at college on that day.
  • You do not attend college for your main qualification; instead you will need to attend college for a block week. Dates of these block weeks will be discussed at sign up and booked in advance.

The entry qualifications for the Level 2 Engineering Technology Apprenticeship are three GCSEs at grades 4 or above (Old GCSE grade C or above) including English and Maths (or equivalent).

The Engineering Technology Apprenticeship will take you two years to complete. You will study at College for one day a week, and four days with your employer.

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).

All Apprentices will receive a minimum wage of £3.90 per hour within their first year of training from their employer, although they can, and often do, pay more.

Successful completion of the Apprenticeship can enhance employment opportunities within the engineering sector or further studies. Providing that the Training Advisor, the employer and tutors agree, you may also be able to progress onto the Advanced Apprenticeship.
