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, Diagnostics and Health & Safety to name but a few. Employability skills and new work experience requirements are the themes for students undertaking land based engineering and this practically biased course allows the student to develop attributes needed to flourish in the industry.

One of the units on your course focuses on work experience. To achieve this unit you must complete a minimum of 45 days work experience which is voluntary and unpaid. It can be completed on a ‘one day a week’ basis or in a block during the summer holidays. Also during 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.

For selected programmes students will have the opportunity to participate in an Industry Placement. This will comprise of 315 hours of placement in an area linked to the selected programme of study. If this is the case, your course manager will contact you in due course to discuss further.

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)
  • Two pairs of college-branded overalls (NB: one must be fire retardant)
  • 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.
