The cake decoration work done at The Sheffield College has an excellent reputation, with competition successes at national level. The section is known for delivering excellent training that allows students to develop exceptional skills in their craft.
The level 2 qualification will build on the skills you have already developed at level 1. The qualification is aimed at those wanting to take on commercial work and will allow them to expand and stretch the basic skills and techniques they have already acquired.
All teaching staff have relevant industrial experience and students will also benefit from studying in an institution that delivers advanced courses in engineering not only to UK national companies, but also to international companies, including those in Vehicle Manufacture, Transport (road and rail), Aerospace, Communications and Broadcast Engineering, Food and Beverage Production and a wide range of general engineering companies. A major component of the course is the Project module in which students are engaged on a personal engineering project of commercial significance. This enables the student to apply much of the knowledge and skills gained on the course to a realistic project at advanced level, and of significant benefit to their employer.View more
