Fabrication and Welding Intermediate Apprenticeship Level 2 at Sittingbourne Technical College

Course description

This course is ideal for individuals who are working as a fabricator or welder who wish to improve their skills or knowledge and develop advanced skills.

Course content

The engineering sector has a long tradition of offering apprenticeship frameworks as a means of meeting the skills requirements for its sector. The framework has kept pace with technological change within each of the subsectors and remains highly relevant to their skills training needs. The framework has been designed to address the skills gaps and to address the issue of an ageing workforce by attracting young people into the engineering industry and providing them with the skills, knowledge and experience that employers are seeking. In addition the Apprenticeship provides a progression route that the existing workforce can use to up-skill themselves to meet the technical, economic and environmental changes.
