The Level 2 Engineering Operative standard is designed for apprentices seeking a career in operational engineering roles, across the engineering and manufacturing sector.
The standard is made up of core knowledge, skills and behaviours, as well as specialist knowledge and skills in line with defined job roles, such as:
Typically, the training period will last between 12 and 18 months, where the learning is focused on ensuring the apprentice acquires the knowledge, skills and behaviours, as set out by the standard as well as achieving the Level 2 Diploma in Engineering Operations (skills) and the Level 2 Certificate or Diploma in Engineering Operations (knowledge).
Apprentices must also achieve level 1 in English and maths and then work towards level 2 English and maths, taking these tests prior to end-point assessment.
Knowing that your apprentice is on track is important and that is why SIAS offers its highly regarded Tracker document and Competence Evaluation Log that gives both the apprentice and employer confidence as the learning progresses.
Guidance materials and individual support for training providers, apprentices and employers are provided throughout the on-programme learning. We also deliver a number of events and webinars to advise and guide across the range of apprenticeships we assess.
