About the course

Machinists in the advanced manufacturing engineering sector are predominantly involved in highly skilled, complex and precision work, machining components from specialist materials using conventional and/or CNC machine tools such as centre lathes, vertical and horizontal milling machines, horizontal and cylindrical grinding machines, electro discharge machines, single and multi- axis CNC machine tools centres. They will be expected to be able set up, operate and adjust/edit equipment settings as applicable to the machine tool being used. When using CNC equipment they will be expected to be able to produce, prove and/or edit programmes. During and on completion of the machining operations they will be expected to measure and check the components being produced and make adjustments to the equipment/programme to ensure components meet the required specification. After a period of foundation skills and technical knowledge development, all apprentices will be required to achieve the following qualifications:
• Level 2 Diploma in Advanced Manufacturing Engineering (Foundation Competence)
• Level 2 Diploma in Machining (Foundation Knowledge) After a further period of skills and technical knowledge development, all apprentices will be required to achieve the following qualifications:
• Level 3 Diploma in Advanced Manufacturing Engineering (Development Competence) - Machining
• Level 3 Diploma in Machining (Development Knowledge)

Engineering technicians in the aerospace, aviation, automotive, maritime defence and wider advanced manufacturing and engineering sector are predominantly involved in highly skilled, complex work and must, as a minimum be able to:
• Apply safe systems of working
• Make a technical contribution to either the design, development, quality assurance, manufacture, installation, commissioning, decommissioning, operation or maintenance of products, equipment, systems, processes or services
• Apply proven techniques and procedures to solve engineering/manufacturing problems
• Demonstrate effective interpersonal skills in communicating both technical and non-technical information
• Have a commitment to continued professional development Engineering technicians take responsibility for the quality and accuracy of the work they undertake within the limits of their personal authority. They also need to be able to demonstrate a core set of behaviours in order to be competent in their job role, complement wider business strategy and development. This will enable them to support their long term career development.

What do I need?

Candidates will be employed within the industry and will typically have 4 GCSEs at Grade C/4 or equivalent, including English, maths and a science. A mandatory requirement for Level 2 English and Maths will need to be completed prior to the end-point assessment.

Where can I progress next?

You can progress onto the Higher Level 4 Apprenticeship in Engineering.
