Course Objectives

Apprenticeships

Work-based learning from age 16, combining training in college and the workplace. Programmes follow nationally recognised standards, detailing the requirements to become qualified in a chosen career. Where required, apprentices are supported to complete relevent English and Maths qualifications.

Content

What we can do for you If you’re running a business and want to build on your workforce, why not consider taking on an apprentice? An apprentice is a great way to invest in your company’s future and ensure your employees have the skills and qualifications needed in the coming years. Apprenticeships combine training at work with college sessions, giving employees the chance to earn while they learn. Your employees gain nationally recognised qualifications that are relevant to their role in the workplace and your business gains a highly skilled employee. We have a wide choice of apprenticeships available to suit all industries and sectors and currently train over 650 apprentices each year. Our tutors and assessors are industry experts in their fields, working closely with employers to ensure that training is relevant to their business.

Prerequisites Entry requirements depend upon the level of Apprenticeship that is being undertaken. There are three levels available: 1. Apprenticeship (equivalent to five GCSE passes) 2. Advanced Apprenticeship (equivalent to two A-Level passes) 3. Higher Apprenticeship

Apprenticeships are available in the following areas: • • • • • • • •

Management Business, Enterprise and Customer Service Construction and Building Services Engineering, Energy and Offshore Health, Social and Childcare Hospitality, Events and Catering Supporting Teaching and Learning Marine Engineering

Higher Apprenticeships Degree apprenticeships are the latest model to be developed as part of higher apprenticeship standards, with apprentices achieving a full bachelor’s or master’s degree as a core component of the apprenticeship. As a degree apprentice, you will receive training (both on- and off-the job), a salary and the opportunity to really start moving your career forward - all without paying hefty tuition fees or running up student debts.

the future workforce Aaron Kern

Jack Hurren After graduating from university, Jack was feeling unfulfilled in his career. He decided to take a gamble and enrol on the Transition to Offshore course in Cohort 1. Upon completion of the course, Jack was offered a position with 3sun Group, working on the Greater Gabbard Windfarm. He then received a further offer of employment from Scottish Power; he has been upskilled with many courses and is now employed by East Anglia 1 Wind Farm, working 4 days on and 4 days off. I can see myself working on Windfarms for the rest of my life, I really love it and enjoy being offshore. It’s been life changing for me; I feel I have really landed on my feet. The course got me out there and I learnt how massive the wind industry is- it truly opened my eyes. 44

Aaron previously attended East Coast College, sucessfully achieving a Level 2 Energy Foundation and a Level 3 Mechanical qualifcation. After a short period of unemployment, Aaron enrolled in Cohort 5 of the Transition to Offshore Course. Following the Transition Course, Aaron was employed by Fairwind and has worked in Norway on the Siemens site. He has now been upskilled in: lifts inside wind turbines, low voltage cables and general safety. This course changed my life 100%. It gave me the qualifications and a really good starting salary, because the company did not need to pay for my training. The on-job experience is brilliant, I’ve never worked so hard in my life and I’m learning really quickly.


Jasmine Allen Jasmine was raised in Beccles and attended the Lowestoft Campus of East Coast College when she left school at 16, where she studied an Energy Skills programme before applying to SSE’s Apprenticeship scheme. Jasmine won Student of the Year for Engineering 2019. She is now an apprentice with the UK’s ‘broadest-based’ energy company, SSE, and is about to start a career as a wind turbine technician in Lowestoft, having been inspired by her grandfather.

I’ve been really impressed with everyone I’ve spoken to in the business and the high standards they set. It really is great to think I’ll be working on the future of energy in renewables, in a challenging and hands-on environment.

Ben Kirchell Ben was previously unemployed when he applied for the Level 2 Diploma in Safe Working Practice in the Wind Turbine Industry course and was accepted onto Cohort 2. Following the course, Ben was employed by 3sun Group, who have upskilled him in a range of areas. Ben has now worked on Greater Gabbard Wind Farm, Lincs Windfarm and Burbo Bank Windfarm.

The Diploma changed my life; I met lots of people and we all became good friends. My first time out on a Windfarm was eye opening and very exciting – I was out there in the real world putting what I had learnt into practice. I am set for life in this career and I’m very grateful for the opportunity the Offshore Wind Skills Centre gave to me.
