Engineering Mechanical Technical Support

Engineering is a fun and interesting area of study and is also proven to provide excellent employment prospects. Within the government’s recent Skills for Jobs white paper (published in 2021), it is highlighted that Engineering disciplines, such as technical maintenance and , are  key skills shortages in the UK. Salary growth and job opportunities are higher in the Engineering sector than most other industries. Engineering is a challenging yet rewarding area of study, and no two days are the same within the Engineering industry.

Darlington College has invested heavily in Mechanical and Electrical Engineering resources, including our new Robotics and Automation Manufacturing lab, technical support workshops, welding workshop and a new Electronics lab (including Electric engine training rigs). This high level of expertise is essential for Engineering students looking to study on our T level qualifications, or on our Apprenticeships and HE offerings.

All Engineering apprenticeships encompass the training required for a professionally qualified engineering employee and have been designed by industry experts. We also offer part-time one-day-a-week Higher Education qualifications, at Level 4 HNC and Level 5 HND,in partnership with Teesside University. Many students study this higher-level qualification alongside a full or part time job within the Engineering industry.
