What opportunities will this course give me?
On completion and achievement of the Standard, progression routes will be provided and discussed with the individual to enable them to make informed choices about continuous professional development.
What will I be learning?
Plumbing and Domestic Heating Technicians plan, select, install, service, commission and maintain all aspects of plumbing and heating systems. Plumbing and domestic heating technicians can find themselves working inside or outside a property. Customer service skills and being tidy and respectful are important qualities as they can often find themselves working in customers homes as well as on building sites.
Why is this course for me?
Apprentices will develop their knowledge, skills and behaviours through on and off-the-job learning and are expected to attend Eastleigh College on a block release basis for 3 years
Apprentices will develop in areas to include:
• Health and safety
• Core plumbing systems
• Electrical components and control systems
• Plumbing science and processes
• Principles of environmental technology systems
• Principles of fossil fuels
• Customer service
For successful completion of the apprenticeship standard in Plumbing and Domestic Heating, all knowledge, skills and behaviours must be suitably demonstrated during an independent end point assessment.
Apprentices will achieve a Level 3 Plumbing and Domestic Heating qualification, Gas Safe accreditation and undertake End Point Assessment.
The Apprenticeship has an expected duration up to 48 months however, this may reduce if an apprentice has gained previous relevant knowledge and skills, which is recognised as Accredited Prior Learning. Up to a further 6 months should be expected for completion of the End Point Assessment.
Your progress will be continuously monitored and supported by a Trainer.
What do I need to sign up?
Entry is subject to interview and assessment. You will need to have relevant employment with a Gas Safe Registered employer. In addition, you will need to have 4 GCSEs at grade C/5 or higher including English & Maths, or exceeding Level 2 in English & Maths.
Is there anything else I need to know?
On successful completion, apprentices will have satisfied the requirements for registration as EngTech by the Engineering Council through The Chartered Institute of Plumbing and Heating Engineering (CIPHE) and or The Chartered Institute of Building Services Engineers (CIBSE).
The apprenticeship end-point assessment is the final evaluation stage of your apprenticeship program at Eastleigh College. It's designed to determine whether you have achieved the knowledge, skills, and behaviours required to meet the apprenticeship standard and perform the job role independently.
Depending on the standard, we assess your competence through various methods, such as practical exams, assignments, interviews, project work, presentations or observations and we will also evaluate your portfolio of evidence, which documents your learning and progress throughout your apprenticeship with us.
The end-point assessment must be taken at the end of your apprenticeship, and the results determine whether you have successfully completed the program and achieved the apprenticeship standard.
Successful completion of the end-point assessment is required to receive certification.
