Course Details

  • Electrical and Electronic principles
  • Mathematics for engineering technicians
  • Health and Safety in the Engineering work place
  • Using and interpreting engineering data and documentation
  • Mechanical principles and application

Your study will involve one day a week at college, the rest will be in your own time, evidence will also need to be gathered in the work place for write ups and projects. Support will be given by Anord Mardix throughout and if you require any help or advice during your course, you can ask any of the Production Management team.

Apprenticeships are now marked on an end point assessment; in your final six months, an end point assessment must be undertaken by an independent assessment organisation. Successful achievement of the end point assessment will lead to final certification of the apprenticeship and demonstrate the apprentice is fully competent. It uses the following tools and should be undertaken in this order;

  • Knowledge assessment (20%)
  • A final observation (40%)
  • A technical interview, based upon an evidence portfolio which will include all evidence of practical observations, progress reviews and work activities (40%)

Application closing date is 26th April 2024.
