New Programme Will Shape Future Engineers

12 May 2017 | Engineering, Automotive & Marine

A new Higher National Certificate (HNC) in General Engineering designed by City College in partnership with industrial mineral company IMERYS, has been put forward as an example of ‘Outstanding Practice in Delivering Higher Level Technical Training’.

The ‘blended’ delivery style of the two year qualification consists of scheduled classroom tutorials, online interactive support and self-study. This remote delivery is a teaching strategy which enables time efficiency for students as they study alongside their workplace learning. Students will be rewarded for their self-motivation with a broad understanding of the industry as they develop skills in maths, engineering management, science, health and safety practice and project design.

“We are pleased to have been able to work alongside IMERYS this past year and have designed a bespoke solution to fit the company’s requirements,” said Bob Hunter, Academy Manager of Marine Industry Technologies at the College. “We continually work with local employers to create training that is relevant and setting up a HNC course with IMERYS will enable students to undertake industry-focused training that meets the needs of a real business. It will provide students with the opportunity to obtain high level technical skills, improving their prospects of employment or internal promotion within a company.”

To find out about engineering courses and other full and part-time courses, including Apprenticeships, the College is holding a Course Information Drop-in event on Wednesday 17 May, 4.30pm to 6.30pm at Kings Road. For more information, please visit or call 01752 305300.
