Level 2 Mechanical Engineering (ITO)

Course Description

Teacher in Charge: Mr J. Norris

This is an engineering workshop based course in which students undertake a number of practical projects while developing metalworking skills and processes. This course prepares students for trade based apprenticeships and will also include a placement at one of our 'Partner Engineering Companies' for once a week for 4 weeks. During this placement students will be introduced to real life engineering workshops and gain the opportunity of using industrial tools and equipment not available in the school workshops.
