During this exciting one-year course, you will learn theoretical and practical skills in Marine Engineering. You will have practical sessions in our dedicated workshops where you will learn about engineering machinery, touch upon computer-aided design (CAD), and improve your mathematical and scientific knowledge.
During this one-year course, you will learn theoretical and practical skills that will give you an insight into the vastly rewarding world of marine engineering. You will have practical and theory sessions in our dedicated workshops, taught by experienced marine engineers, from a variety of engineering backgrounds. You will build a detailed knowledge of the types of machinery used in engineering, touch upon computer-aided design (CAD) and improve your mathematical and scientific knowledge.
Units you will cover over the year include:
• Introduction to the marine industry
• Business improvement techniques
• Marine engineering processes and principles
• Servicing and maintenance of marine engines and ancillary systems
• Servicing and maintenance of marine propulsion systems
Learners will develop skills in areas such as hand fitting, turning, machining, welding
Minimum four grade 3-9 at GCSE or successful completion of the Level 1 course, and English and/or maths at grade 3.
A mixture of internal and external assessments and practical work.
Once you have completed this course, you will achieve a Level 2 Diploma in Marine Engineering (Foundation).
This qualification suitably meets the needs of educators, employers, and the external environment. After completion, this will allow the progression of students to further study at level 3, into an apprenticeship, or into the workplace.
The hands-on nature of this course forms a large part of the Level 2 Apprenticeship, making it easy for you to progress into the Marine Engineering apprenticeship or continue onto the Level 3 Engineering course.
There may be some additional costs during the course for trips and visits to further your learning.
