We believe in developing and investing in talent. And, we know that by supporting our future leaders and engineers to gain the very best skills, behaviours and experience around, we’ll continue to have a bright, successful future and they will too. So, whether you’ve just finished you’re A-levels or B-Tech and are interested in a career in engineering, or perhaps already work within the utilities sector, our ETP could be perfect for you!
Over 24 months, you’ll develop leadership skills, gain technical exposure and understanding, and experience professional development, through a combination of theoretical learning and on the job experience. We’ll also make sure that you’re on track throughout the scheme by conducting regular reviews to check you’re setting yourself up for success. Supported by PTLLS (Preparing to Teach in the Lifelong Learning Sector) trainers, you’ll be driven, focussed and keen to achieve a supervisory role in a technical discipline.
You’ll study towards achieving an HNC in Mechanical Engineering. Over two years this will be a combination of academic study at Solihull College and on-the-job training at work. You’ll also have a dedicated mentor to support you at every step.
Year one: Nine weeks study at college combined with generic training at work such as personal development, health and safety, leadership.
Year two: Nine weeks study at college combined with more specific on-the-job training, relevant to your actual programme/business area.
Your career path
Once you’ve successfully completed the ETP Scheme, you’ll move onto a Level six role. The role you move into will depend on which area of the business you work in. We’ll also support you in gaining your accreditation at this point too.
