Overview top

This course will develop your welding skills to a good level which will give you opportunity to find employment in the engineering and welding industry which is a skills shortage area.

You will work towards two level 2 qualifications - MIG and TIG.

We know that having good qualifications alone doesn't always make you stand out.

That's why we're all about going the extra mile with you.

Studying with us means practical, hands-on workshops, group sessions, expert guest speakers, visits to local employers, wellbeing drop-ins, chill out time ... the list goes on. 

As part of the course, you will also take part in an external work placement to help you develop your confidence and skills to stand out from the crowd. 

Entry Requirements top

You will need to have achieved a level 1 award in MIG and TIG welding.

You will have a discussion with the course leader to ensure this is the right course for you.

Assessment top

You will create a series of practical test pieces which your teacher will assess against a set standard, checking the quality of work through various inspection tests. You will also be assessed through short written and oral questions to check your knowledge of the subject, which includes health and safety. You will be supported throughout your course by high quality teaching staff.

Professional Opportunities top

On successful completion of both level 2 qualifications, you can go into employment, seek an apprenticeship, or study further on a level 2 technical certificate.
