Inspiring people to succeed

Get Paid, Get Qualified

One of the best things about an Apprenticeship in engineering is that you will be able to work under the supervision of experts in an engineering environment . You will experience: 

  • Work in a professional engineering environment
  • Learn from expert engineers
  • Continually gain new practical skills and experience
  • Earn while you learn

 

When you successfully complete your Engineering Intermediate Apprenticeship, you will qualify with a Level 2 qualification enabling you to progress onto a level 3 Apprenticeship. Your level 2 Apprenticeship qualification will include learning a variety of skills both academic and practical.

An Apprenticeship really is what you make it and at Paragon Skills we are here to ensure that you get the most from it.

What you can expect

An Apprenticeship is a valuable doorway of opportunity for learners and employees to progress in their industry. The engineering/manufacturing operators cover many different industries, from printing and photographic processing, chemicals, metals, rubber and plastics, to food, drink and tobacco.

A Engineering Intermediate Apprenticeship is an investment in the skills you need to succeed in the engineering industry. These skills include:

  • Good organisational skills
  • Interaction and 'people' skills
  • An understanding and tactful approach
  • Willingness to learn new techniques and methods

 

The exact details of your job depend on your specific employer, but typically you can expect to work between 9am and 5pm, Monday to Friday these hours may differ depending on your chosen employer. As a engineering Apprentice, your role could include any of the following:

  • Computer Aided Design, Electrical / Electronic, Machining, Welding and Fabrication. 
  • Quality control - Batch sampling of components or sub assemblies to identify if they are compliant.
  • Ensuring plant equipment and manufacturing systems remain operational through preventative and on condition maintenance.

Your pathway to success

Once your Apprenticeship is completed, you could progress to the other advanced level Apprenticeships in engineering, or employment in the industry in a role such as manufacturing operations.

The age profile of the current workforce presented a recruitment challenge as many operators are aged 60 plus and only 10% are aged under 24 years old.  More engineering/manufacturing employers have staff undertaking Apprenticeships.  It was anticipated that there would be a net requirement for 4,700 operators (660 per annum) over the period 2010-2016 just to cover retirements, meaning the need for Apprentices is now increasing rapidly.

There is great scope in this sector, with the Manufacturing Level 2 Apprenticeship pathway focusing on training apprentices to operate effectively in a manufacturing environment.  Typical job roles include assembly operations of electrical and electronic products, vehicles, aerospace, marine, metal goods and production of moulded products.  Other roles include receiving and checking raw materials and sub assemblies, inspection, test and quality control.

At Paragon Skills we are committed to inspiring you to succeed, and are there to support you throughout every stage of your Engineering Manufacturing Intermediate Apprenticeship.

We are looking for learners as committed and as passionate as we are. If this is you, then speak to us today and jump-start your career with Paragon Skills.
