Subject Overview

It is now widely recognised that the sector is facing a skills crisis like never before, and measures need to be taken to help the leaders of the engineering industry fill the jobs that are integral to the field. According to the Government’s “Engineering UK report 2018”, for the engineering sector to gain enough candidates to reduce the skills shortage, they would need around 186,000 skilled recruits each year until 2024. The demand is also extremely high in the North East of England, so not only is Engineering a fun and interesting area of study but it also is proven to provide excellent employment prospects.

Our Full Time courses, designed primarily for school leavers, are designed to progress you onto Higher Education courses at University, onto an Apprenticeship or even directly into employment. Our Engineering courses encompass a range of disciplines including design, robotics, electronics, machining, fabrication, metal work, mechanics, maintenance and process control. Please read the course descriptions for further detail on each course. Our courses are carefully planned and delivered to provide a clear route to becoming a professional engineer, no matter what the starting point on the ladder to a career in Engineering.

Currently, we offer Apprenticeships in design, mechanical, manufacturing, electrical, maintenance, fabrication and welding engineering. All of our apprenticeships encompass the training required for a professionally qualified engineering employee, and have been designed by industry experts.

We also offer part-time Higher Education qualifications at HNC and HND level in Engineering – with specialisms in mechanical, manufacturing and mechatronics through our franchise with Teesside University. This is great progression for a full time student or equally an excellent recognised industry qualification to study alongside a full or part time job.
