Marine Engineering in Partnership with Hull Trinity House

In partnership with Hull Trinity House, HETA are able to offer marine engineering apprenticeships. Working on everything from small support vessels up to 2000 tonne factory ships, this is an opportunity to be involved in shorebased engineering and at sea.

Learners spend their first year at Hull Trinity studying AS maths and Physics as well as selected open awards units above to get them ready for academic demands as an engineer. Learners will then complete our multi skilled first year programme before spending 2 years in company. Learners will also complete their Health & Safety tickets such as sea survival and firefighting. HETA are working towards MCA Approval.

Course Overview

Working on everything from small support vessels up to 2000 tonne factory ships, this is an opportunity to be involved in shore-based engineering and at sea. Learners will complete our multi skilled first year programme before spending 2 years in company. Learners will also complete their Health & Safety tickets such as sea survival and firefighting. The course is delivered through a combination of academic, practical, and work related experiences.

Multi-skilled programme:

Multi-skilled engineers will maintain the safety, integrity and effective operation of plant and equipment in engineering and manufacturing industries that are part of or have activities that are part of the broader Engineering Sector.

Multi-skilled Technicians will work on various types of ships and equipment commonly found throughout the Engineering Industry sectors and the Technicians can be expected to migrate through these sectors during the course of their careers.

These Technicians will undertake installation, testing, servicing, removal, replacement, maintenance and repair of a range of equipment, sometimes complex, as part of planned preventative and reactive maintenance programmes. They may also undertake decommissioning activities when plant is being removed from service. They will be responsible for the quality of their own work, possibly others’ and ensuring the work is completed safely, meets stakeholder quality, time and budget requirements, whilst maintaining the efficient running of plant and equipment.

Course Delivery:

Study your first year at Hull Trinity House Nautical College with modules including:

  • AS Physics
  • AS Maths
  • Range of industry qualifications covering; power boating, navigation, seamanship and engine maintenance.
  • MCA AEC1
  • Level 3 Certificate in Maritime Studies

Leading to MIN524 certificate of competence as a small vesselengineer. In year 12 all students will complete: STCW Basic SafetyTraining comprising, Security Awareness, Personal Safety andSocial Responsibility (PSSR), Personal Survival Techniques (PST),Fire Prevention and Fire Fighting, Elementary First Aid (EFA)

During the second year of a HETA apprenticeship, learners will be based at the HETA training centre. The first 8 months, learners will undertake a multi-skilled engineering programme including Mechanical and Electrical engineering. The last 3 months will consist of undertaking specialised training in Electrical engineering.

During your time in company, you will be assessed in the following:

  • Portfolio work based assessments
  • Engineering Assessor to review apprentices progression in sponsored company (help with support and mentoring)
  • End Point Assessments (final assessment for an apprentice to ensure that they can do the job they have been training for- Skills, Knowledge and Behaviour)
