Get the right skills for work

We have close links to local engineering companies, so we can offer you plenty of opportunities

In a recent survey, half of UK Engineering companies surveyed were currently recruiting engineers but increasingly they were experiencing problems with getting the right people. That’s why we work closely with local and national businesses to make sure that you develop the knowledge and skills they are looking for.

The College has links to several local Engineering companies, such as Cobham plc, Lymington Precision Engineering, Superior Seals and Aish Technologies. So there are plenty of opportunities for talented and enthusiastic Engineers to progress in their chosen career. Being a qualified Engineering Professional, you could earn up to £39,000 a year.

All our courses have a strong practical element to them, giving you the opportunity to do hands-on training. Our workshops are well-equipped with industry standard machinery and reflect an industrial environment.
