Level 4 Engineering Manufacturing Technician Apprenticeship
The broad purpose of the occupation is to provide specialist technical support for engineers, so that organisations can develop, produce or test new/existing products, processes, or procedures to meet a customer specification in terms of quality, cost and delivery, as efficiently and effectively as possible. Engineering Manufacturing Technicians gather information and data from a range of sources and analyse the information/data. They will make decisions, solve problems and produce and/or update technical documentation, reports or specifications covering areas such as quality, reliability, production schedules/targets, costing or other technical documentation that informs others, either internally or externally what needs to be done such as how a product must be designed, manufactured, tested, modified, maintained, stored, transported, commissioned or decommissioned.

- Engineering Design
- Engineering Maths
- Engineering Science
- Managing a Professional Project
- Mechanical Principles
- Mechanical Workshop Practices

How will I be assessed?
Achievement of the course is dependent on passing the end point assessment. The end point assessment will consist of a observation with questioning (Pass/Fail) and a Professional Discussion, supported by portfolio of evidence (Pass/Distinction)
How will the course be delivered?

Individual employers will set the selection criteria for their Apprenticeships. In order to optimise success candidates will typically have 5 GCSE's at Grade C ( Grade 4/5 in the new numerical GCSE grading system) or above, including Mathematics, English and a Science, Technology or Engineering related subject, or 90+ credits in an Engineering BTEC at level 3. *(As further guidance, the level of Mathematics has an advisory GCSE level of grade B (Grade 5/6 in the new numerical GCSE grading system)
