Fancy becoming an engineer? Then apply NOW!

There are a few places left on two new engineering courses that could set you on the path to a successful career in engineering - but hurry! There are only a couple of days left to apply.

Anglian Water engineering course

Two new courses are starting at the College of West Anglia in Wisbech next month.  Anyone wanting to apply for a place must get their application in by this Thursday (August 20), with interviews due to be held on August 24.

The two-year BTEC courses are sponsored by Anglian Water and its alliance of civil engineering partners.

The first  course will give students a full grounding in both mechanical and electrical engineering before allowing them to specialise in their second year.

A second course concentrates on construction and will cover various aspects of laying water networks.

Students who pass all their modules will be offered an interview with one of the companies in Anglian Water's @one Alliance, which could lead to an apprenticeship and a career in the utilities industry.

Russell Beal, from Anglian Water, said: "Our plans for investing in the region's water network mean we need an army of skilled, dedicated and hard working engineers and construction operatives over the next few years.

"We've been working in Fenland for some time now through the Wisbech 2020 project to help the area realise its full potential, so CWA in Wisbech was the obvious place for us to launch these new courses.

"This is the perfect opportunity for any young people in Wisbech and further afield who are still looking at their options for the Autumn to make the first steps in a exciting and rewarding career.

The courses are open to people of any age from school leavers upwards. Full funding is available for 16-18 year-olds and some funding is available for older applicants.
