Engineering expands to new campus

SGS College is leading the way to employment in the engineering sector with students having the skills desired by industry.

With outstanding progression rates at level 3, all engineering graduates from the Stroud Campus have gained apprenticeships, employment in engineering, university placements or a place at National Composites Centre as a gap year. Now the College is expanding the area and is rolling out the course in Bristol.

Commencing at the Filton Campus from September, the projects within the course give learners a taste of developing technical skills and overcoming challenges within a team environment. Whilst also giving a foundation in developing communications, employability skills and design/project work.

This year the College is also preparing for an exciting development at Berkeley. This is going to be a bespoke engineering college aligned with a University Technical College. The Berkeley GREEN College will be opening its doors to students from September 2016 and in anticipation of this opportunity, SGS will be running the Level 3 Engineering course in Bristol starting in September, with students who choose to continue for a second year being taught at the Berkeley site. This course will prepare potential future engineers for employment, apprenticeships and university.

Andrew Keenan, Head of Engineering at SGS College said: "These are exciting times for Engineering at SGS College. We have achieved strong success at our Stroud Campus and we are looking to give Bristol based learners the same opportunities. With the development of our Berkeley Campus in 2016, we will be in an excellent position to provide passionate and educated young people for the local engineering industry.

"We will be hosting an Open Evening for Engineering at our Filton Campus on the Thursday 2nd July from 5pm – 7pm. This is for anyone who is interested in undertaking an engineering course from September. We will have some of our passionate staff and some of our exciting projects on display for you to interact with. Come along and get your questions answered, this is for both potential students as well as parents and guardians."
