After completing his secondary schooling at James Hargest College Michael successfully applied to undertake the engineering pre apprenticeship course at the Southern Institute of Technology.
At the completion of the course Michael was offered an apprenticeship with Southern Group Training and has been placed with J K Stevenson Ltd for his on job practical training.
During the pre apprenticeship course students cover various health and safety requirements including first aid, safe use of hand tools and safe use of power tools all of which makes them safer in the workplace.
They are also trained in the Level 2 unit standard requirements of their apprenticeship qualification which enables the student to be more useful in the workplace.
Any Level 4 qualification requires that the Level 2 requirements be completed before the apprentice begins Level 4. Completing the Level 2 requirement at S.I.T on a pre apprenticeship course offers an apprentice the opportunity to ‘kick start’ his apprenticeship and is well worth considering.
