Course overviewEngineering Level 2 Apprenticeship City of Bristol College
This Engineering Level 2 Apprenticeship Standards is for students who have been employed as an apprentice in an engineering role. Complete your apprenticeship with us and become an outstanding professional in your workplace.
Alongside your employer, we can support you to complete your Level 2 apprenticeship in engineering. Our specialist areas include:
- Engineering Technical Support Operative
- Lean Manufacturing Operative
- Maintenance and Installation Manufacturing
- Manufacturing Operative
- Welder/Fabricator Operative
You need to find your own employer as part of your application for an apprenticeship, but we will help you with this. If you don’t have an employer, you could choose to study for a Level 2 Diploma in Engineering Technology.
Who is this course for?
This course is for anyone who is passionate and enthusiastic about engineering and has good personal organisational skills.
You must be prepared to commit at least 24 months to the course and be capable of following instructions to carry out complex engineering tasks and overcome problems, while either working as part of a team or on your own.
What you'll learn
Throughout the course, you will learn from experienced engineers to practically apply what you have been taught in your day to day job. You will develop key engineering maintenance and installation concepts and the necessary skills required for efficient maintenance of equipment.
Course entry requirements
To join this course you must:
- demonstrate good communication and interpersonal skills at interview
- give a competent performance in our engineering aptitude test
- have at least Grade 3 in English, Maths and Science at GCSE level.
How is the course delivered and assessed?
Alongside your employment as an Intermediate Apprentice, you will attend sessions at City of Bristol College. These sessions are tailored to complement your on-the-job learning.
You will mainly be assessed through practical tasks. However, you should also expect some written assignments. You may also need to complete self-study guides in engineering practice.
Future career and study opportunities
Many apprentices either progress to higher-level College courses (Level 3 Certificates), or to Level 3 Apprenticeships.
Either way you will have gained the technical and practical skills to give you a solid grounding in your chosen engineering specialism, working as an installer of electrical or mechanical equipment.
You will need to provide your own personal protective equipment (PPE) in the form of boots and uniform/clothing. You will also need pens, books, drawing equipment and a scientific calculator.
