Learners will be expected to purchase a recommended course textbook and provide their own safety footwear and overalls.
What Performing Engineering Operations students have said in the past?
“I did have the qualifications to start at level 3 but considering that all apprentices need to complete this level 2 NVQ I decided to start on this course, my decision was warranted as l gained an apprenticeship in the new year which meant that l had already completed half the work when l returned on day release.”
