â€śEngineers design and build things that make our world go round. Everything, from aeroplanes to building, comes back to engineering. This hugely diverse field can be divided into seven sub-categories: aerospace, automotive, metals, electrical equipment, electronics, marine maintenance, and mechanical engineering. This Apprenticeship covers a range of job roles in these sub-sectors.â€ť â€“ National Apprenticeship Service
This apprenticeship is for people who want to become a qualified Mechanical Engineer, andÂ is a follow on course from the Performing Engineering Operations Apprenticeship.
An apprenticeship is a great way to gain a new qualification while staying in your current job and earning money. At the end of the course, you will have a nationally recognised qualification and no debts to pay!Â Over 85% of our engineering apprentices are offered permanent positions by their employers once they have completed their apprenticeship.
Recent data from SEMTA (Sector Skills Council for science, engineering and manufacturing technologies) states that 67,000 people need to be trained in Mechanical Engineering in UK between 2005 and 2014, to keep up with the demand.
With a Level 3 Diploma in Mechanical Manufacturing, you are qualified to the level of a craftsperson or technician. In the future you could work as an engineering craft/CNC machinist, manufacturing production planner, mechanical engineer, mechanical engineering technician or production engineer; and then progress to a project manager or programme director position.
In the future you may be interested in studyingÂ further and complete a Diploma in Engineering Leadership, Diploma in Business Improvement, Diploma in People Management, FdSc Engineering, HNC EngineeringÂ or a BSc (Hons) Mechanical Design and Manufacture.
