The Level 2 Science Manufacturing Process Operative standard is designed for apprentices seeking a career in operating science industry manufacturing equipment, across the Nuclear, Petrochemical, Pharmaceutical, Biotechnology, Formulated Products and Polymers sectors.
Undertaking basic operations and monitoring of plant and equipment, Science Manufacturing Process Operatives will safely operate machines to process or manufacture, assemble and finish component parts or finished products. The standard is made up of core knowledge, skills and behaviours.
Typically, the training period will last between 18 and 24 months, where the learning is focused on ensuring the apprentice acquires the knowledge, skills and behaviours, as set out by the standard. 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.
