Local industry supports the delivery of Engineering at East Norfolk Sixth Form College
East Norfolk Sixth Form College recently hosted an Industry Consultation Event in conjunction with Norfolk Chamber of Commerce and the East of England Energy Group (EEEGR). Key employers from the area worked with the College to further develop the Engineering provision to be offered from September 2014.
Introducing BTEC Level 3 Engineering into the curriculum at EN supports the College’s desire to provide outstanding experiences for its students.
Dr Catherine Richards, Deputy Principal outlined the benefits of this new curriculum offer
‘Giving young people the choice to study BTEC Engineering together with A levels in subjects such as Maths, Physics, 3D Design and Geology will help to support local industry. Partnership working with employers has helped us to identify the most suitable units to be studied for direct entry to work, apprenticeships or university. We are very proud of the innovative work that we are doing in this area to prepare our young people for careers in this skills shortage area.’
East Norfolk Sixth Form College has an excellent record of success and its work with employers was recognised by Ofsted when good links with employers were recognised and creativity in the curriculum was positively received by Inspectors.
Any local employers wishing to find out more about the introduction of BTEC Engineering are asked to contact Dr Catherine Richards for more information by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org
