Engineering Apprenticeships allow employers to grow their business while developing a work force with the relevant skills and knowledge to enhance and sustain the sector
The Modern Apprenticeship in Engineering has a number of different pathways that learners can take.

ESFA Funded Engineering Apprenticeships (England)

Engineering Operative – Level 2 Standard

Engineering Operatives are predominantly involved in engineering operations which are key to the success of the Manufacturing and Engineering sector allowing employers to grow their business while developing a work force with the relevant skills and knowledge to enhance and sustain the sector.

The role covers a wide range of common and job specific skills sets that can be transferred across the manufacturing engineering industry sectors during the course of their careers. Dependent on the sector that they are employed in there may be subtle differences in terms of composition and application of the job role specific skills and knowledge they will require, however the core skills and knowledge will be the same regardless of the sector/area they work in.

Engineering Operatives will have clear reporting lines with anything outside their role and responsibility. They will work individually or as part of a team to carry out a range of engineering operations which could include ensuring machines and equipment used are maintained and serviceable, dealing with breakdowns, restoring components and systems to serviceable condition by repair and replacement; operating a variety of machines (CNC or Conventional); assembling and repairing machine and press tools, dies, jigs, fixtures and other tools; fabrication/installation of a wide variety of other sheet fabrications and equipment and; fabrication and assembly of metal parts joining techniques; preparing materials and equipment for engineering processes, providing technical support including communications software, test tools, performance, capacity planning, and e-commerce technology as required.

  • Engineering Operatives must comply with statutory regulations and organisation safety requirements including any environmental compliance procedures and systems;
  • Identify hazards and hazardous situations;
  • Prepare the work area and equipment;
  • Obtain and follow the appropriate job documentation and work instructions;
  • Extract the necessary data and information from specifications and related documentation;
  • Carry out the engineering activities in line with their job role;
  • Carry quality checks as required; working with minimum supervision either individually or as part of a team and will be responsible for their own actions and for the quality and accuracy and timely delivery of the work they undertake.

Bus and Coach Engineering Technician – Level 3 Standard

A Bus and Coach Technician will predominantly inspect, diagnose, repair and test equipment and systems on buses and coaches from different manufacturers. At the point of recruitment a specific trade would be selected, i.e. mechanical, electrical coachbuilder or mechelec (a combination of mechanical and electrical).

Engineering Technicians work on all systems of the vehicles in respect of their specific trade. The work ranges from performing simple tasks, like replacing a part to solving complex faults often using diagnostic equipment.  The tasks faced by a Technician are constantly changing as vehicles become more complex with the introduction of new technologies and differing fuel types.

The Technicians of today have to demonstrate expertise in the technical side of their role as well as having strong problem-solving skills. They must be able to work independently and also as part of a team. The growing complexity of the vehicles and the need to understand and comply with the rigorous Health and Safety and Legislative requirements, requires the Bus and Coach sector to attract and train high calibre individuals.
