Extended Diploma in Advanced Engineering
Functional Skills are a vital part of the apprenticeship. They provide the essential knowledge, skills and understanding needed to operate confidently, effectively and independently. Functional Skills are available at Level 1 and Level 2 and the level the apprentice will work towards will depend on the previous qualifications achieved, the results of an assessment prior to the apprenticeship and the requirements of the apprenticeship they are completing.
Delivery and Assessment
Development of the job role competencies and skills and behaviours can be delivered exclusively by Bury College, co-delivered with a workplace mentor who will work alongside the Learning and Skills Coach to support and log the apprentice's progress. The dedicated, qualified Learning and Skills Coach will support the teaching and learning of the apprentice in their development of Performing Engineering Operations knowledge and competence in their work-based activities.
For the Level 2 Performing Engineering Operations certificate, the Learning and Skills Coach will visit on a regular basis to support with developing the electronic portfolio which is used as evidence for the completion of the qualifications. Assessment of the Apprentice's progress in their workplace competencies involves:
· Professional discussions
· Question and answer sessions
