Your training will give you knowledge skills and behaviours required in the workplace to apply general engineering principles and you will then specialise according to the needs of your employer.
Specialisms can include;
• MECHANICAL ENGINEERING
• MANUFACTURING ENGINEERING
• FABRICATION AND WELDING
• MECHANICAL AND ELECTRICAL MAINTENANCE
During your programme your college assessors and your employer will ensure you have a great grounding in the knowledge, skills and behaviours required to succeed in the specialisms outlined above.
Your year 1 programme, predominantly based at Gainsborough College, will ensure that learn the general engineering knowledge and skills to ensure that when you transition into the workplace, you are both safe and ready to take on more advanced skills-based learning.
In Year 2 you will start to specialise into the field of engineering your employer specifies. Here you will start to learn and apply a higher level of technical competence. To guide you through this year your employer will assign an experienced mentor to support you in your work.
While you are with us we will continue to develop your maths and English skills, both of which are vital in the engineering industry.
From Year Two you will spend most of your time in the cut and thrust of the industry.
You will be expected to meet the needs of your employer and perform well, both at work and at college.
