Engineering

Engineering is all about finding creative solutions to challenging problems, if this sounds like something you’d enjoy then a career within this industry could be for you. Those looking to study an engineering course will find themselves presented with a vast array of diverse career options as the field is split into a number of specialities including: Mechanical Engineering, Electrical Engineering and Fabrication and Welding

What’s happening in the industry?

The Engineering sector in Leicestershire currently employs over 23,000 people with an additional 32,000 people working in non-advanced manufacturing jobs locally.

It has been highlighted by the Leicester and Leicestershire Enterprise Partnership (LLEP) that a skills gap has emerged, meaning businesses across the region are looking to hire in the fields of electrical and mechanical engineering, green technologies and research and design engineers, all fields that Stephenson College offers learners through full-time courses and apprenticeship programmes.

Apprenticeship Engineering Manufacture - Fabrication and Welding - Level 2

The course is structured around tutor-led demonstration of all the practical elements of fabrication and welding. There are practical assignments, designed to develop a thorough understanding of the subjects and how to apply them in a real-world situation. Question and answer is a method very much used to check the student's understanding and will support all practical demonstration activities. As an intermediate learner, you will be expected to produce completed practical assignments demonstrating good safe working practices and reports that reflect your understanding of the subject. It will be expected that all reports will conform to the appropriate standard of spelling and grammar commensurate with Level 2. All evidence will be gathered directly from the practical activities and entered into your own course handbook for final assessment. Formative assessment will be on-going throughout the course with feedback from your tutor. As the key part of the learning experience, you will have a full understanding of what is required of you and have every opportunity to develop your own techniques and understanding to the fullest possible. Your tutor will provide you with all the resource necessary for you to develop through stretch and challenge. The course is designed to provide a firm foundation for progression to a Level 3 apprenticeship.
