Mechanical and Fabrication practical skills
Engineering National 5 Skills will give you the broad practical skills base you’ll need in engineering manufacture systems and processes. You’ll develop the skills and knowledge necessary for basic engineering processes and maintenance working on a range of engineering systems including fitting using hand skills fabrication and welding engineering, manufacturing project design and more.
The course supports progression into other Engineering studies, training or employment. The course provides the basis for candidates to gain an insight into other engineering occupations such as mechanical, fabrication, automotive, aeronautical, electrical and electronic, marine and control and to use your studies to help you to decide the career that you wish to study.
Personal Protective Equipment (PPE) required, and this will be arranged between school and college.
