All entry requirement details are correct at the time of publication, September 2018, however, the College may need to make some changes by September 2019 in the light of student demand, staff availability and external factors beyond the College’s control.
The units covered in this course are:
City and Guilds
In this course you will gain the knowledge and experience required when starting out on your journey to a career in engineering. The City and Guilds Level 2 in Engineering is an exciting course that gives you the chance to learn how to use different types of machinery that are in common use in the workplace. During the course you will be using Computer Aided Design software to produce engineering drawings and then produce them in the workshop using bench fitting and fabrication skills. This course is ideal for students who plan to go into any of the many different fields of engineering or who want to progress to the Level 3 City and Guilds course.
Most of the course is completed internally through work done in the workshop and in the classroom. Two of the units are externally assessed by examinations; these will be completed in January and June.
In East Yorkshire, Engineering is the biggest employment sector and it is growing all the time. Some huge contracts have been awarded to multinational companies in the area and these have created lots of job opportunities. This course will provide you with an ideal qualification to progress into these types of jobs or onto Level 3 Engineering at Wilberforce.
The City and Guilds Engineering course is one where work you do in the workshop and the classroom is continually assessed. We will ask you to do private study if you get behind with work or there are deadlines that you need to meet.
Due to the workshop element of the course all students will need to have a set of cotton overalls and a pair of steel toe-cap boots. These could be purchased before you start the course or they could be ordered through the Engineering Department.
A wide variety of teaching techniques will be used. In the workshop you will generally be taught by the teacher demonstrating how to use the machinery. It definitely won’t be the case of just watching….you’ll soon be working on all the machinery and will be given tips on how to use it correctly and without any mistakes. You will also be taught in classroom situations – again with real life problems to make the work relevant to what happens in employment. One thing you’ll always be able to say about the teaching – it will always be useful to working in Engineering once you leave college!
…you want to work in an industry where there are a wide variety of job opportunities available and there is the possibility of developing a career onwards and upwards. It is also for you if you enjoy the feeling of knowing that every single lesson is about learning something that will be of use to you in your future career.
