Potential engineers can now take a vocational route all the way to degree level thanks to a newly formed partnership between In-Comm Training and the University of Wolverhampton.
HNC Higher Apprenticeships have been launched in the West Midlands this month and have already attracted 20 people who are looking for a more practical route to gaining the highest possible competences and qualifications.
According to In Comm, the HNC element of the programme is an intensive year-long course, which can be funded by the Apprenticeship Levy and features 12 technical modules, with the learning being delivered at In-Comm’s technical academy in Aldridge and the university’s dedicated engineering campus. In regard to the competence element of the programme, this will run alongside, with the learner producing a portfolio of evidence complementing the knowledge undertaken in the HNC. Course elements include engineering and manufacture, design, research, business improvement techniques, and new product development.
