An exciting opportunity exists for companies based in Wales to take part in the launch of new, funded, Engineering Degree Apprenticeships which are currently for any age. This opportunity is for existing employees or new recruits to enable them to achieve a fully accredited B.Eng. degree. apply to attend a 2 day discovery workshop and work with other people and organisations from both within and outside of the aviation sector. No grant funding is available in this phase, but we will cover the costs to attend the event. Grant funding for projects will be available for future phases, when we will ask you to apply with a detailed project proposal.

The structure of this programme is day release one day per week for level 4 and level 5 and then attending university day release for level 6. The Engineering Degree Apprenticeship programme is accredited by the IET and IMechE for Incorporated Engineer status. The only prerequisite would be a minimum of a level 3 qualification in a relevant subject; this could be a minimum 2 A levels or a relevant BTEC or EAL level 3 qualification.

The programme would be 5 years in duration for new entrants. Should staff already have, for example, a HNC or HND, their prior learning would be taken into account and they may be eligible to study only the last 2 or 3 years of the programme.

Due to Welsh Government requirements it is important to confirm indicative numbers as soon as possible to secure the funding. For this reason companies need to indicate their interest in taking part in this programme as soon as possible but prior to 31st October 2019.
