The apprenticeship will be delivered using a day release programme where the HNC will be delivered. We are also going to utalise a belended learning approach to include an online platform, giving our apprentices a flexible approach to their learning, taking note of our recent experiences with the world pandemic. Assessments will be made in the workplace by an assessor, reviews will take place every 10 weeks either with a visit to the work place or using a Smart room in Smart Assessor.
5 GCSEs at Grade C/4 or equivalent, including English, maths and a science. As part of the apprenticeship recruitment process, all candidates will take part in an initial assessment and will need to achieve a Level 2 in English and maths to be able to join the programme. Achievement of a level 3 Engineering Apprenticeship Programme or Level 3 Engineering Programme of study could be a route onto this programme
Designed for wide range of engineering sectors, the broad purpose of the occupation is to provide specialist technical support for engineers, so that organisations can develop, produce or test new/existing products, processes, or procedures to meet a customer specification in terms of quality, cost and delivery, as efficiently and effectively as possible.
EMT’s gather information and data from a range of sources and analyse the information/data. They will make decisions, solve problems and produce and/or update technical documentation, reports or specifications covering areas such as quality, reliability, production schedules/targets, costing or other technical documentation that informs others to review courses of action.
On a daily basis, the EMT will interact with their line manager to confirm departmental programmes of work and to agree on individual responsibilities which leads into an overarching organisational resource and delivery plan. EMT’s can be office based and/or manufacturing/plant-based, working and supporting engineering and/or manufacturing teams at an operational level. EMT’s will liaise with internal colleagues, and with customers, suppliers or with representatives from appropriate regulatory bodies.
An employee in this occupation will be responsible for the quality, safety, and delivery of the manufactured product or service, ensuring it is delivered to the customer on time at the agreed cost. Although working within defined quality processes and procedures, EMT’s are responsible for the delivery, quality, and accuracy of the work they complete. They have the autonomy to use judgement when undertaking the occupational duties and applying their technical knowledge, skills, and behaviours in a wide range of contexts and environments. They use a range of tools and techniques to support decision making and solve problems that are often complex and non-routine. They also have a responsibility to identify and contribute to making improvements such as business processes, procedures, ways and methods of working.
