The Level 4 Engineering Manufacturing Technician Apprenticeship Standard (Higher Apprenticeship) has been developed to provide learners with the skills, knowledge and behaviours that they need to carry out their current role, or those that are progressing to middle management roles within Engineering and Manufacturing.

An Apprenticeship allows you to combine work and study by mixing on-the-job learning with an employer, and off-the-job learning at our training centre one day per week.

The Higher Apprenticeship will take you three and a half years to complete.

Entry Requirements

A Higher Apprenticeship is a progression route for someone who has completed a Level 3 Apprenticeship in Engineering, or has achieved a minimum of 90 credits in a Level 3 BTEC in Engineering.

You must also be aged 18 or over, and have achieved a Level 2 or GCSE in Maths and English.

Due to the higher mathematical content included within the Higher Apprenticeship, you may be asked to complete a Level 3 Maths bridging unit at Derwent Training before starting the Apprenticeship.

Things to Note

The Higher Apprenticeship will include a large proportion of self-directed study and research which is expected to be completed outside of classroom hours in order to meet the assignment deadlines.

"Ellis Patents opted for a Higher Apprenticeship Scheme so that the candidate could be taken from an early stage in their engineering career and brought up to a high level of skill, whilst gaining experience of the working requirements at Ellis Patents along the way. At the end of the Apprenticeship, Ellis Patents will gain a fully trained and adept engineer with a high level of work experience making them a high valued member of the technical team."
