The EAL Level 2 Diploma in Engineering Technologies is a Vocational Related Qualification (VRQ). It will give learners knowledge and understanding of a broad range of engineering competencies. The qualifications cover the intermediate knowledge, understanding and skills that are required by someone working in the engineering industry. It takes a hands-on approach to intermediate engineering training by providing learners with:
• Knowledge and understanding of a range of engineering competencies
• Information that will help them make more informed decisions about their career options
• Personal skills
This qualification is designed for learners who are working in the fish and shellfish processing and supply
industry. It offers learners the opportunity to develop skills and knowledge required to prove competence at

World class companies use some of the most innovative and technically automated equipment available to manufacture a wide range of food and drink products. Both Mechanical and Multi-skilled Engineers need to maximise the benefits of the technology.
Multi-skilled Maintenance Engineers need to maximise the benefits of technology. Depending on the type of product and plant in the company, engineering activities carried out will include routine maintenance, fault finding and diagnosis. testing and commissioning. They must ensure that maintenance activities contribute to optimising food and drink production levels.
This standard focuses on working on food and drink production lines within food manufacturing plants and businesses. This 2 year apprenticeship is based at our Holbeach campus and awards an Intermediate Apprenticeship Level 2 Diploma in Food and Drink Operations.
Food and drink process operators work in manufacturing, one of the largest and fastest growing sectors in the food and drink industry.
You could be employed by a company that specialises in one type of product, for example ready meals, soft drinks or confectionery; or in a company that makes a wide range of different products.
Your apprenticeship will be tailored depending on your place of work and you study principles of manufacturing practice, food safety and HACCP, maintaining product quality and health, safety and environmental standards.
