The apprenticeship may take up to 42 months to complete (36 months planned delivery with 6 months preparation work for the End Point Assessment).
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
This apprenticeship course is designed for the technicians in a position of working with propulsion systems. The Propulsion Technician (PT) is responsible for the testing or building function to support the development of propulsion systems such as internal combustion engines, hybrid and electric propulsion technology and advanced control systems. The PT would be responsible for enabling the execution of development plans which fulfil the internal customer’s and facility’s requirements for quality, cost and time, whilst adhering to safe systems of work and risk management. The PT also carries out a range of specialist tasks in a controlled environment in order to develop, improve or create new propulsion technologies. The PT plays a proactive role in development build or test delivery, taking responsibility for creating, editing, first line data analysis and quality validation, providing an essential link between the propulsion development function and engineers. This standard covers various options of Propulsion functional which are identified on the course information sheet. To get the very best out of this Propulsion standard the relationship between the Employer, Apprentice and Assessor is critical, working together and effectively communication a true measure of success.
Units may include some of the following, the course structure is still being built. Additional units are in discussion to be created. Manufacturing Processes, Manufacturing Planning & Scheduling Principles, Statistical Process Control or Manufacturing Operations Mathematics or Engineering Maths, Workplace Study and Ergonomics, Business Improvement Techniques, Lean Techniques for Manufacturing Operations, Introduction to plant commissioning and decommissioning, Engineering Plant Operation and Maintenance and Quality & Process
