Our Apprentices will undertake an Advanced Apprenticeship programme under a framework of certification.

This will include a block of off-the-job training at SETA’s training centre in Southampton to gain thorough training into an introduction to Engineering and gain additional practical engineering skills, and to also begin your theory required in order that you will achieve an advanced apprenticeship.

This will take around 20 weeks full time (37 hours a week) at SETA and begin a BTEC in Engineering, which will continue, one day a week after the initial training.

You will be required to complete functional skills at level 2 in Mathematics, English where applicable.

Back in company, you will begin working towards an end test in order to achieve your advanced apprenticeship, cover many required tasks and theories to ensure full competence at the level 3 standards requirements.

This standard will be completed by the successful attainment of the 3-part end test.

The one-day release back to SETA will take two academic years in order to complete the BTEC in Engineering.

For candidates who do well and wish to progress, there is the opportunity to progress further certification.
