Potential students interested in entering the engineering industry will be able to find out about current apprenticeship vacancies as well as speaking with the College about career opportunities and studying at the CATCH Academy in September 2019. The Academy runs a variety of programmes including level 2 and 3 electrical and mechanical engineering programmes including the level 3 Introduction to Engineering Construction programme. All courses have a focus on preparing students for employment and for apprenticeships with local employers.
It’s also a chance for employers to find out more about taking on apprentices or using apprenticeships to develop existing staff, and to find out about funded or full cost training. The College offers the maintenance operations engineering technician apprenticeship at CATCH in addition to new provision starting in September, the science manufacturing technician apprenticeship. The College also has 30 current students at the Academy looking to progress to engineering apprenticeships this year and this event is an opportunity to find out more about those learners.
CATCH Skills and the College also offer short courses in areas such as electrical, mechanical, health & safety, leadership and management, soft skills and process for employers to upskill their existing staff or for individuals looking to come into industry. The College offers the maintenance operations engineering technician apprenticeship at CATCH in addition to new provision starting in September, HNC engineering and the level 4 engineering apprenticeship plus the science manufacturing technician apprenticeship.
James McIntosh, Head of CATCH Skills said, “This event is an excellent opportunity to showcase what the partnership between North Lindsey College and CATCH can offer. Employers will be able to visit to find out how we can best serve their training and competency needs for their staff in addition to the various apprenticeship programmes to recruit the future stars of your business whilst also utilising your apprenticeship levy to upskill existing staff. For the potential students it will illustrate the wide range of pathways to industry through either Level 2 or 3 Apprenticeship routes and also give them the chance to apply for actual vacancies so they can progress their careers further.”
