Engineered Learning is an independently owned engineering training provider. Since its conception in 2012 it has delivered client focused learning in a number of different frameworks and styles. Our company name was conceived to encompass all aspects of tailored learning.

  • We are an alternative education provider offering school age students the opportunity to train with us. As each students engineering skills improve, they can achieve nationally recognised BTEC qualifications.
  • Educational courses are frequently designed to achieve a pre-determined set of learning outcomes in order to satisfy funding criteria or national curriculum objectives. Examples include building self-confidence, developing a positive self-image, working with others, developing team skills and raising motivation

 

Concentrated efforts have been made to incorporate team-working skills into the delivery of all learning, as the identity and the ethos of our brand becomes more clearly understood by its instructors and the end user.

Students learn exceptional skills at this provision and make outstanding progress over their time here. Students learn to weld, grind and use various drilling machines. Students are working towards a level 1 qualification in Engineering. Most students here are assessed as working at Entry level and therefore are making very good progress.
