Engineering career paths


CAREER PATHS: Mechanical / Plant and Systems Maintenance Technician, Lift Services / Electronics Maintenance Technician.

Successful completion of these Advanced Level Apprenticeship frameworks reflect the ability to identify and use relevant understanding, methods and skills to complete tasks and address problems that, while well defined, have a measure of complexity. This includes taking responsibility for initiating and completing tasks and procedures, as well as exercising autonomy and judgement within parameters. It also reflects awareness of different perspectives or approaches within an area of study or work.
