Level 3 Engineering Design and Draughtsperson (Structual HNC Route) Apprenticeship
Engineering design and draughtspersons produce designs and drawings for structures, piping, electrical systems, control and instrumentation systems and mechanical components used in industrial and commercial construction. Typically, jobholders work in a wide range of industries of national importance including power and water infrastructure, petrochemical, oil and gas, nuclear, food and drink processing.
Jobholders are based at office locations within project design teams and occasionally work at on-site locations. They are required to understand on-site hazards and health and safety requirements.
The jobholder must: Understand technical drawings and specifications and be able to create their own; identify factors likely to affect design decisions; produce CAD (computer aided design) models and engineering drawings and; be able to communicate design information to internal and external parties.
What will I study?

How will the course be delivered?
Delivery includes weekly classes to cover the requirements of the recommended qualification and most of the apprenticeship standard knowledge elements at our Beverley campus.
Visits to the workplace will be carried out to support and assess workplace competences, support the required consultative project and prepare the apprentice for End Point Assessment.
Individual employers will set the selection criteria for their apprenticeships. This will typically include a requirement for a minimum of 5 GCSE grades A* - C/9-4 (or equivalent qualifications) including mathematics (preferably B/5-6); English (Language); a science or technical subject. Apprentices must have achieved a GCSE to at least a grade C/4, a level 2 qualification in Functional Skills, or an equivalent qualification in both English and mathematics before being entered for their final apprenticeship assessment.
