EAL Certificate in Preparation for Working in the Engineering Manufacturing Industry (PWE)

This qualification has been developed in consultation with employers who are keen to bring new entrants into the workforce, who have little or no previous experience of a manufacturing environment. RRNETC will work with companies to shape the qualification to cover individual work experiences linked to company current requirements.

It is based on employers’ expectations of what a prospective employee should know prior to entering their workplace. This qualification is focused on making a prospective employee work ready, it does not remove the need for any subsequent training they may require once they are employed.

EAL Diploma in Performing Engineering Operations (PEO)

This qualification covers the fundamental skills and knowledge common to all engineering practices, including health and safety requirements and communicating engineering information. It offers an extensive choice and flexibility for learners to demonstrate competence in one or more of a broad variety of engineering activities.

Prior to attending the course all applicants will be required to take the RRNETC assessment test to ensure that their levels of numeracy meet the required standard for working in engineering and maintenance. Company’s can interview their own candidates prior to this or alternatively many companies use an employment recruitment service to support them in this role, which normally incurs a charge from the recruitment service on successful placement of individuals in the company.

Training can be delivered as a full or part PWE’s or PEO’s. Training cohorts should be 8 - 10 adults (aged 19 and over) or multiples thereof and be in receipt of Job seekers Allowance or Employment and Support Allowance in the Work Related Activity group benefits. Individuals who are unemployed and in receipt of other benefits or have other circumstances who want to enter employment and need skills training to do so may also be eligible.

It is not a requirement of the employer to employ all the ‘trainees’ that they put forward to attend the course, but at least one employed role should be available to the cohort trained.
