_J2A8914-small

The BTEC Higher National Certificate (HNC) in Mechanical Engineering is studied over 18 months (3 semesters) on a part-time basis. It covers the fundamental scientific principles and then applies these to creating systems, services and products. The course is designed to enhance the career prospects for those employed in mechanical, manufacturing or operational engineering. It’s a natural progression from the BTEC National Certificate/Diploma/Level 3 qualifications and could lead to a career as a senior technician or junior engineer within the industry.

Modules include CAD/CAM, engineering design and a study of materials, fluid mechanics, and materials engineering. Students who have successfully completed the HNC may progress onto the HND top-up course which takes a further 18 months to complete.

The cost of studying for an HNC on a part time basis through us is more favourable than studying at a University and you are able to fund your qualification through the Student Loan Company…

About Paul Champion

Some have called me a leader, and a entrepreneur, they say I have integrity, presence and skills to ensure continuous improvement and success in whatever challenges I face. They also tell me that I am positive, resilient and motivating. I say, I'm just a normaI guy from Gateshead in the North of England, who started as an apprentice engineer. I have been in the right place at the right time and in the wrong place at the wrong time! I have successfully initiated and led complex organizations and situations to completion and success, and I have been in some jobs where success seemed untouchable. Mainly though, I have tried to learn everyday, help people to progress and learn the skills they need to be successful. I have had the privilege of working with some great people locally across the UK and more recently internationally in Asia, Europe and now USA, where I am lucky enough to work for www.3aaa.co.uk where I am head of 3aaa USA. This website is just me having an outlet to talk about all those thoughts, ideas and things I learn that pass through my head every day when I face the challenge of doing business. I will also rant on about how great apprenticeships are, and how you can help change peoples lives through them. After all thats how I got to do the great things that I have done, and also I am still an apprentice everyday! All I ask is that if you find it interesting then leave a comment and share what you read. THANK YOU.
