The Introduction to Engineering Construction (ITEC) Programme is a one year course and will give the selected young people the relevant skills, knowledge and health and safety awareness required to prepare them for working in the engineering construction sector. The programme will run for an academic year for three days a week.
While in centre, students will do 10 weeks of practical study in:
- General Health & Safety

Students will also work towards achieving a Level 3 City & Guilds 2850 Diploma in Engineering.
Martin Eatough (ECITB Head of Apprenticeships) – “ This is an excellent opportunity for those students who are currently studying for or in the process of applying for an Engineering qualification and are looking for an opportunity to secure an Apprenticeship or full time employment within the engineering sector. The programme will allow them to achieve all of the year one components of a formal Apprenticeship and, on completion of the programme, make them very attractive to potential employers”
