Course Summary

This City & Guilds course is delivered at our purpose-built workshop in Ilkeston. It will provide you with the basic concepts and skills in welding and you will learn various methods of MIG welding processes.

The course takes 16 weeks to complete in three-hour sessions.  It leads seamlessly to the Level 3 Welding Awareness course that is also delivered at Ilkeston throughout the year.

Due to the potential risk from welding fume and under the Health and Safety Executive guidance, it is now going to be compulsory to wear a protective respiratory mask during all welding operations. All students must undergo a FIT test to make sure the mask seals to the face. A clean shaven face is a must for the mask to seal. Any students wishing to participate in welding must be clean shaven and pass the face FIT test.

Entry requirements

A Level 1 qualification in Welding is needed to access this course as the Level 2 qualification builds on these skills. Demand is high, however, and we strongly recommend that you contact the course leader before enrolling to avoid any disappointment.

Grace Draper

Best of both worlds on a Rolls-Royce apprenticeship

At the age of 16, Grace Draper decided to apply for an apprenticeship at Rolls-Royce rather than go on to do A-levels. She’s not looked back since.
 
She has excelled while gaining on-the-job experience with the company and during her training at Derby College, where she has achieved Distinction standards. Now she is set to take her qualifications further with a foundation degree at the College, sponsored by Rolls-Royce.
 
Such has been Grace’s success that she was highly commended in the Manufacturing and Engineering Apprenticeship category of our 2014 Peak Awards. Judges described her as a ‘model learner’ and praised her collaborative work on projects, where she demonstrated the team skills and personal attributes which are vital in today’s engineering industry.

An apprenticeship at Rolls- Royce is the best of both worlds. We get to work in all sorts of areas of the company, earning while we’re learning. Having completed my first two years of the apprenticeship, I’m looking forward to starting the foundation degree.
