What is the City & Guilds TechBac Qualification?
The City & Guilds TechBac qualification is a great way of getting qualified for civil engineering jobs in Cumbria. The qualification was launched in September 2014 and is a full time qualification aimed at 16 to 18 year olds. The course results in a level 3 qualification, giving the student UCAS points and counting towards the Government’s Technical Baccalaureate measure.
There are six TechBac qualifications available in the following areas: automotive, construction, digital, early years, engineering, land based services. The engineering TechBac covers various areas of engineering, including engineering design, rail engineering and civil engineering. By the end of the course, students are expected to have a good knowledge of civil engineering including understanding of the principles and application of it. This makes the qualification a good place to start when preparing for civil engineering jobs in Cumbria.
Furthermore, the City & Guilds TechBac programme will also soon be available for Key Stage 4 and 5 learners (14-16 year olds), so it will be even easier to begin the journey towards an engineering degree as early as in school.
Work Experience
Part of the qualification includes practical work experience where the student is exposed to a real work environment over a long period of time. This differs from traditional work experience where the student may only spend a week in a workplace, and where the time spent may be largely in observation as opposed to working. This helps the student recognise whether civil engineering jobs in Cumbria are ideal for them, or whether they would be better focusing on another area of work.
