Highly trained subject specialists and outstanding resources underpin what is a fast growing and very successful area. Students will focus on areas such as engine technology, Inspect and Test, fabrication and welding to name a few. Employability skills are key themes for students undertaking this engineering course which has a good blend of practical and theory elements, designed to develop attributes needed to flourish in industry.

There is an ovious focus on being 'work ready' so its advised that you explore and secure a work placement opportunity which will support you on your learning journey. It can be completed on a weekly basis on days when you are not required at college and/or in a block during holiday periods.

Throughout the course, you will get the opportunity to go on a range of visits. You will get plenty of notice of these visits and trips so that you save for them, although we try and keep them as cheap as possible.

Before you begin your course, you’ll need to make sure you’re prepared with the right equipment. Many of our courses need specialist health and safety clothing, but we’ve made it simple - some of your essentials and college branded clothing can be bought from our online shop.

For your course, you will need:

One pair of steel toe cap boots

Safety goggles (clear)

One pair of college-branded overalls (NB: these must be cotton)

All other Personal Protective Equipment (PPE) will be provided

Folder with dividers to organise your work and assignments

Stationery including notepad for use in class, pens and pencils

USB pen drive (for saving your work)

Please note – you will not be allowed to take part in workshop activities if you fail to have your boots and overalls with you.
