Congratulations to our Apprentices on the completion of their BTEC qualification.
Simon Carves runs an ECITB funded apprenticeship scheme with Stockport College.
James, a Mechanical Apprentice with Simon Carves, explains what the course entails:
“During our two years at Stockport College, we were taught both in the workshops and in the classroom; learning common fabrication techniques and studying the academic foundations of Engineering. Our modules included Maths, Mechanical Principles, Electrical Principles and Engineering Materials, amongst others. As part of our coursework in our second year we were tasked with producing an individual ‘Engineering Project’.
This BTEC qualification (in which we all gained Distinction, D*D*) has allowed us to enrol on our chosen BEng degree courses for this academic year, and has provided us with a solid underpinning knowledge to aid us in our future careers.”
