Who the course is for

Overview of Role:  

Marine engineers work on boats such as yachts, commercial craft and superyachts. They install, maintain, fault find and repair marine engines, ancillary systems and equipment. They design and produce solutions to meet boat layouts, restrictions and engineering requirements, or produce boat engineering systems from engineering and technical drawings to specifications. 

Marine engineers typically work with associated trades such as Boatbuilders and Marine Electricians and have a strong marine industry understanding.

Entry Requirements:  

There are no formal entry requirements but each employer might state their own requirements. This will likely include level 2 qualifications in English, maths and Technology.  

Duration:  

The apprenticeship will typically take up to 48 months to complete, depending on prior skills and knowledge. 

What the interview will involve

If you have an employer that is willing to take you on as an apprentice, please provide us with those details so we can contact them.

What you will learn

Delivery:  

Apprentices will complete work-based learning and will be paid a wage, gaining valuable knowledge and experience. In-house training will be provided by the employer with an Assessor visiting and supporting in the work place. Further training will be provided at the Isle of Wight College, depending on the needs of the learner and the employer. This method of delivery allows for a flexible approach which is tailored to each apprenticeship.  

Qualification:  

Unless already achieved, qualifications in level 2 English and maths must be completed prior to the completion of the apprenticeship. 

Level 2 and 3 diplomas in marine engineering will also need to be completed prior to the gateway, which will be delivered at CECAMM.

Assessment:  

The apprenticeship will end with an End Point Assessment (EPA). This measures the skills, knowledge and behaviours each apprentice has developed. Employers will decide when the apprentice is ready to be assessed. 

The End Point Assessment consists of:  

  • Professional report  
  • Apprentice presentation  
  • Structured interview  

Career Progression:  

On successful completion, the apprentice will be recognised by the Institute of Marine Engineering, Science and Technology (IMarEST) at Engineering Technician level.
