With many students being understandably concerned about the amount of apprenticeship places which will be available this year, its good to let you all know about a new set of schemes. LSBU is launching the new Rail and Rails systems Engineer apprenticeships at Levels 5 and 6, becoming the first provider of these standards in England.
Colleagues from the School of Engineering and the Apprenticeship Team worked with internal and external experts from Network Rail to ensure that these apprenticeships are designed to meet the needs of employers and apprentices in the sector.
The Rail and Rail Systems Engineer Apprenticeship includes an engineering qualification in Rail and Rail Systems Engineering FdEng. The Rail and Rail Systems Senior Engineer Apprenticeship includes a degree qualification, BEng (Hons) in Rail and Rail Systems Engineering. All of our courses are accredited or developed in partnership with the leading professional accrediting bodies.
Both apprenticeship Standards aligns with the current edition of the UK Standard for Professional Engineering Competence (UK-SPEC) at the appropriate level (Eng Tech or IEng). The experience gained and responsibility held by the apprentice on completion of the apprenticeships will either wholly or partially satisfy the requirements for IEng.
