The level 3 Engineering Fitter Apprenticeship is designed for apprentices looking for a career in constructing, assembling and manufacturing machinery.

Our resources for our Engineering Fitter Apprenticeships will give you the guidance you need to support apprentices through their on-programme learning, build their confidence and competence to ensure a quality learning experience in preparation for End Point Assessment (EPA).  

We are on the register of end-point assessment organisations for Engineering Fitter Apprenticeships.  Our high-quality, rigorous EPA can be delivered at a convenient time for your apprentice.  As part of our EPA service we provide a suite of guidance documents and preparation tools to get your apprentices ready for EPA. 

On-programme

City & Guilds has designed innovative and flexible delivery content that will equip apprentices with the competence and confidence to perform their best in assessment.  Including;

Mandatory qualification:  On-programme for this apprenticeship is a period of learning, development and assessment structured using mandatory qualifications or relevant Internationally Recognised certificates (as laid out in the Standard and Assessment Plan).  Our Level 3 Diploma in Advanced Manufacturing Engineering (Development Knowledge) 4515-03 supports the delivery of all the skills, knowledge and behaviours required.

Apprenticeship training manual: Our apprenticeship training manual (ATM) guides tutors and apprentices through a range of practical tasks mapped to the standard, allowing apprentices to track progress and record evidence of their learning as they go. Tasks are mapped to maths & English requirements, developing knowledge and skills in a real working environment. 

Sample knowledge tests: We provide samples of the on-programme knowledge tests to use with apprentices for formative assessment.  The pack includes the question paper and answers that are similar in size and requirements to the live papers.

Induction learning content: Extensive content including handouts and e-learning modules meets the mandatory requirements for any apprenticeship programme of learning: 
  • Health and Safety
  • Safeguarding and Prevent
  • Equality and diversity
  • British values
Maths & English: Our Functional Skills qualifications cover the core maths and English requirements for this standard.  Our support package, e-Functional Skills is an online teaching and learning platform that guides learners from an initial diagnostic assessment, through to meeting the requirements for this standard.
