Intermediate Performing Engineering Operations
Level 2 is ideal if you have some knowledge and basic skills in production or maintenance engineering - probably from a role where you work under supervision. Or if you would like to increase your skills and perhaps progress on to more advanced qualifications.
One day a week at our Tottenham Centre or Enfield Centre and the rest of the time working closely with an employer.
Average Duration: The apprenticeship runs for 12 months
The Intermediate Performing Engineering Operations Apprenticeship is made up of a framework which includes:
- Performing Engineering Operations NVQ Diploma Level 2
- Engineering Certificate Level 2
- Maths Functional Skills Level 1
- English Functional Skills Level 1
- Employment Rights and Responsibilities.
Students may progress on to full time employment or Advanced Apprenticeships in Engineering in various fields such as mechanical, electronics, maintenance etc.
The apprentice is expected to attend college to attain knowledge training and complete exams and complete workshop tasks. In addition to that they will also be trained by the employer and expected to complete an online e-portfolio.
Applicants will be assessed and interviewed to demonstrate that they are able to cover the range required by the relevant NVQ at work. In addition, the apprentices are expected to carry out initial assessments in English and Maths where they would be expected to ideally achieve Level 1 in both subject areas. If an apprentice has GCSE grade C and above in English and Maths then they do not have to do functional skills as a part of the apprenticeship.
How to apply
You can apply through the college application. Once you have applied to the college, you will be invited for an interview at the college and also with the potential employer.
