  • Overview

    What will I learn?

    The Applied Professional Engineering courses incorporate exciting opportunities for students to develop their understanding and learning of engineering, in preparation for progression into engineering industry traineeships. The programme allows for a one year transition programme, which gives learners the opportunity to develop key underpinning skills and knowledge, in fundamental subject area, such as; Engineering Design, Engineering Mathematics and Computer Aided Design, all taught by industry expert Lecturers. In addition to engineering you will also study Maths and English GCSE’s in order to maximise your progression opportunities. An innovative and exciting addition to the Applied Professional study programme is the introduction of a structured work placement package. This will include students participating in real work experience in engineering industry and this will be facilitated by a structured calendar on a day release basis.

    What enrichment can I look forward to?

    Trips and visits are a key part of the course and you will have the chance to take part in visits to industry, fundraising activities and five-a-side football competitions.
