Employee progression via Foundation Degrees
Higher level qualifications for metals industry
At last there are two higher level qualifications offering progression opportunities for apprentices and other staff.
These new qualifications are -
Foundation Degree in Engineering - taught course offered by Sheffield Hallam University
Foundation Degree in Casting Technology - offered by Bradford College, in conjunction with Leeds Metropolitan University, offered on a distance learning basis.
These courses will run in September 2009. To find out how these courses can develop the high-level technical skills you need book your place on the:
Metskill Foundation Degree Seminar
Thursday 30 April - 4pm to 6pm
at Metskill, Amos Road, Sheffield
The programme includes presentations from:
Mark Thompson, Head of Undergraduate Admissions (Engineering), Sheffield Hallam University
Pam Murrell, Operations Director, Institute of Cast Metals Engineers
Steve Tagg, Sheffield Forgemasters - on why they are putting 10 apprentices onto Foundation Degree programmes this year.
The programme includes the opportunity to ask questions on all aspects of how the Foundation Degrees will be delivered, entrance criteria, the role of workplace projects, costs and available funding.
This is a real opportunity to continue the development of apprentices through to level 4 and 5 qualifications and onto full degrees if required. I look forward to seeing you at the seminar. Please reply with one of the following lines in the subject line by Monday 30th March.
I will be attending the seminar on 30th April.
I am unable to attend but would like to discuss using Foundation Degrees.
