Control/Technical Support Engineer Apprenticeship BEng (Hons)

What is Control/Technical Support Engineer Apprenticeship BEng (Hons)?

Learning on leading industry 4.0 manufacturing systems, apprentices gain a BEng qualification upon successful completion of this programme. ​​​​This degree apprenticeship course has been designed to teach core engineering and management skills which can then be applied in the workplace.

Study style

The Apprenticeship runs over 3 semesters throughout the year and learners are typically required to attend university one day per week in semesters 1 and  2. In semester 3, teaching is via block delivery where learners attend university for one or two 5-day periods. The rest of the time they are in the workplace.

Modules will cover theory, practical and lab based activity. Knowledge is embedded through experience and applied in industry focused project work. You will be integrated within the wider engineering community wherever possible to provide opportunities for collaboration and experience of working with other disciplines and specialisms.

Typically, the duration of this apprenticeship is 5 years. This duration may be reduced for a candidate with previous relevant experience and/or someone already part qualified who may enter directly into Level 5 or 6.

Support for apprentices and employers

All learners have a Personal Tutor who will remain a source of advice and guidance throughout your apprenticeship. They will also be supported by module tutors and our Helpzone staff, who are contactable by telephone, in person and online.

Employers are able to access our dedicated apprenticeship support team, who are here to ensure that businesses get the best from both the student and the programme

Entry requirements

Individual employers will set the selection criteria for their apprenticeships.

Apprentices should have 5 GCSEs at Grade C or above, including Mathematics, English and a Science, Technology or Engineering related subject. Candidates should also have A Levels at grade C or above in both a Mathematical based subject and a Science, Technology, Engineering or additional Mathematics related subject, or 90+ credits in an Engineering BTEC at level 3.

Direct entries onto Level 5 or 6 are available with an appropriate Engineering HNC/HND qualification.

Apprentices should be in full-time employment (eg at least employed for 30 hours per week) throughout the duration of their apprenticeship, and 20% of their working hours should be spent on off-the-job training.

Areas of study

Learners entering at level 4 will need to achieve 360 credits for the BEng award. The modules listed have been mapped to the Apprenticeships standard to ensure that learners are equipped with the relevant skills, behaviours and knowledge to meet the requirements of the End Point Assessment.
